Coaster Desks Artist Drafting Table Desk

Among popular drafting tables with a contemporary design is the Coaster Desks Artist Drafting Table Desk. If you are looking for a versatile table that you can add to your workspace at home or in the office, this might be a good choice for you.

Designed with artists in mind, this drafting table is not only sleek and functional but also lightweight and slim. With a clean design and a sophisticated gray finish, the table is beautifully crafted and is reminiscent of retro-modern homes in the 1950s.

While this drafting table is very stylish, it is pretty simple and highly functional. It is a little taller and smaller than most drafting table of the same price.

This Coaster Desks Artist Drafting Table Desk comes with a clean tempered glass top that tilts smoothly if you use it for drawing or reading. At the lower end of the table, there is a lip that ensures that your work stays in place when you lift the top.

Measuring 41 inches wide, 24 inches deep and 32 inches high, this drafting table gives you enough storage space to help you organize your room at home or in the office. On the side of the table is a mini cabinet where you can store your art materials or office supplies.

The height of the table gives you the option to either stand or sit while drafting. If you prefer to stand, you don’t have to lean over too much with this table.

From a drafting sheet to a sketchpad, you have plenty of space to set up anything on the actual working area, which measures 36 inches. You can tilt the working area upwards from 50 to 60 degrees.

At first glance, it doesn’t look like this table can hold much. Surprisingly, its maximum weight capacity when flat is 100 lbs. The surface is made of tempered glass making it very secure.

When you need to do some tracing work, you can use the desk as a light box. You will be amazed by how light shines through the tempered glass although it is slightly tinted.

You can use any regular desk lamp. Just let it hang on the front wire piece under the desk. This will be of great help if you are transferring artwork from scrap paper to quality paper.

The table has additional plastic cup holders that can be detached. If you want to make the table smaller, just remove the cup holders. Before you use a T-square, remove the cup holders first because they can interfere with your drafting.

To make sure the table won’t wobble when you erase or do tasks requiring movement, the tubed steel legs have screw-on plastic bottoms that can be adjusted to handle uneven floors. With its solid construction, the table is able to stay in your workstation for years.

Just take care of the table whether or not you’re using it. When not in use, keep the dust off by covering the top of the glass with part of the cardboard box it came in.
