The Ultra-Lite Core Plain Edge Board is 80% lighter than most wooden boards. It has a smooth, natural basswood surface on both sides.
A resin-impregnated pulp fiber "Airtite" honeycomb core is permanently bonded to basswood surfaces for rigidity and strength. At only 4 lbs (1.8 kg), the board has a feather-light feel. Each board is 0.7" (18 mm) thick.

Comments about Helix Ultra-Lite Core Plain Edge Board:
I purchased this to replace gatorboard for attaching watercolor paper with push pins instead of tape or staples for vertical painting. It doesn't seem to weigh much more than gatorboard but is sturdy and takes pins well. I will probably buy another in a larger size soon. Definitely recommended!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lightweight board, just what I needed
from Scottsburg, IN
I had two drawing boards I used for mounting my watercolor paper on, and they were damaged by flooding. I couldn't find exactly the same kind, but I found this and it's very close and so far seems to be just as nice.

What an Improvement!
from Cockeysville, MD
The Helix Ultra-Lite Core Plain Edge Board is a great tool for building RC Model airplanes. The surface is soft enough for attaching plans with pins or tape. I have an old board that is 20+ years old and there are way too many pits and abrasions so this new board is a treat indeed! The price was great which helped to seal the deal!!
Glad I bought it
from Hilton Head Island, SC
I use this to tape my paper to when doing my art (drawing, painting, etc) and just as a back-drop to save my poor desk. I love it - it is very lightweight, so I can carry it around and it straight and sturdy - no bumps or issues. Nice smooth surface to work on. I am glad I bought it
not smooth enough
from Burbs of Philly, PA
I wanted a drawing board that was a smaller size than the large one I have, but this one is almost unusable as it has slightly raised areas (almost like bubbles) and areas where the wood grain leaves divets. I guess I'll use this for some other purpose and look for a drawing board that is actually smooth.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the flaws in the board you received, and we're happy to take care of this for you. One of our Customer Care Agents will be in touch via email to assist you.

Helix drawing board

It is fabulous for drawing and watercolor......
Perfect Drawing Board
from Ponchatoula, LA
I do a lot of work on 22/30 stonehenge paper. This was the perfect drawing board! It's incredibly light and has a nice sanded finish. I also prefer to use art masking tape instead of clips to hold my paper stationary. It's the perfect surface for temporary use and easy removal.
