Very nice table

Comments about Wood Drafting Table:
I found this table to be easy to assemble since they are now pre-assembled then taken apart to be packed. The only thing I would change would be to use Crosscut screws (philips head) in stead of the flat head screws.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Proceed with caution!!!!!

The drafting table came a full month before we were told it would arrive which was a major plus, however, the screws do not line up with the holes, the distances between the braces are inaccurate with attaching the needed components. I had to largely construct myself and ignore the inaccurate instructions.I needed to drill my own holes with an power drill. Many of the pre-drilled holes are the wrong size for the screws provided and the wood is not drilled for carriage screws; resulting in my having to drill the holes to make them fit. We too needed Gorilla Glue to assure a firm seal that the screws could not accomplish.I knew that the reviews were less than stellar when I ordered this product, and told the Dick Blick representative my concerns based on the other reviews, and he promised me that the issues had been addressed.Clearly they had not been.Bottom line is that this product is way overpriced for what it is, and should not be listed or sold by a highly respected art supply source as Dick Blick.However, Gorilla Glue should get a nice little commission based on these reviews.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have now owned four of these drawing tables in my life time of over 30 years with a career in the field of commercial and fine art. The price has remained about the same during all these years, with little impact from inflation. However, demand for this product has certainly been impacted by the advent of the computer age in graphic design for commercial art. This table is perfect for my applications - fine art. Very sturdy, in assembling the product I clamped and glued were I could to insure even better stability. I love this table, it is no wonder I have owned four of them over 30 years.

The only fault of this table I found,was that the pre-drilled holes on the table top do not line up with the holes for the part which you have to put on.I had to drill my own carefully,and you have to be careful when you are screwing on the part for the underneath table top if you go to far you go through the top. Luckily I caught it before this happened.I had to back the screws out and apply Gorilla Glue,so it would secure the part to hold the top on.I just hope in the long run it holds up.
you get what you pay for
If you need a solid, stable desk for serious long term use, I wouldn't recommend this. Really soft wood. It'll need some sort of cover to not scar the surface. I can imagine the wood degrading after adjusting height from time to time, causing slippage and/or loss of balance. Some screw holes missing, others n the wrong place. Definitely some extra tooling needed, but nothing too major. Needs better bracing.

The flat head screws suplied and used for assembly make the process longer and frustrating. Some of the guide holes were in the wrong place. Plan for 2 hours. The actual size of my table was 30 x 41, not 42. The pencil holder [...] is nailed and glued on making removal of the remnant piece very difficult. "Professional" drafting table is a misnomer.
