Drawing board project update. June 2011




Acrylic top now fitted with chamfered edges, these have been polished. The board mounts onto the supports that you saw in the last blog



The drafting arm came from the states and I have stripped it of paint and hand polished it. Here it is in pieces before being rebuilt, take pictures before you take apart to aid re-assembly.



A nice abstract shot of the board, with the new drafting arm in place. The light is just hitting the edge.
