I have for some time been wanting a drawing table in my office here at school. However, my office is already pretty crowded with furniture: my desk, a conference table, bookshelves, and a storage cabinet. I was even thinking about getting a portable drawing stand could put on top of my conference table.
Then last week, in preparation for classes, I was cleaning out a closet in one of our classrooms, and found this old abandoned dictionary table.
“That,” I said to myself, “has some potential.” So I took it home, glued and hammered some new trim on the front, and painted it black to coordinate with my other furniture. I now have a little drawing table that I can roll anywhere, and it’s just the right size for drawing my Tex cartoons.
