For many years now, drawing boards have provided draftsmen, architects, and artists with a surface to create and design on the run. While these boards look like large, wooden cutting boards, they're so much more than that. Many of these boards are more like portable drafting tables. Some of them actually come equipped with legs, which fold down to make a full-sized drawing table.

Many first-year students invest in these portable boards because they don't have their own office or studio space. If you're thinking about buying one of these boards for yourself or the student in your life, you need to make sure to find a board with a carrying handle. If you don't find a board with a handle, you may find it easier to leave your drawing board at home.

Create Dynamic Presentations with Drawing Boards

Drawing boards come in a variety of different sizes. They also come with a variety of different options. It's a good idea to look for a board with a locking stand, and a locking slide ruler. If you're a drafting student, you may not need all of these extras, but many professionals prefer them. Professionals often look for board stands with adjustable legs and adjustable angles.

Drawing boards are great for presentations and for displaying final projects. These boards cost less money than traditional drafting tables, and are often the choice of professionals who spend a great deal of time working on-site. You can also find boards that are designed specifically to meet the needs of computer-assisted drafting computers and programs.
