The only problem with a regular table is that it's horizontal. Looking at your work like this can distort the images. A regular table is fine if you purchase a small drawing board to raise the images. The other problem with a regular table is that it can really hurt your back from all the bending over.

How do i fix a painted coffee table chip


This looks like you have a coffee table that has been powder coated (I may be wrong). This process allows for a very nice looking finish, but if it is chipped, it can't be fully repaired in the same way you would repair a regular painted surface.

To legitimately repair it, the entire table would need to be sand-blasted down to the surface and powder coated again.

As I'm sure that's not the solution you'll want to do, I would simply suggest a patch-job. Find a paint marker (similar to a sharpie, but instead of ink, it dispenses paint) which closely matches the paint of the table. You may want to pick up several shades at a hobby store of sorts. Simply apply the paint on the area so it doesn't draw the eye's attention. You'll know it's there and be able to see it, but in most cases, no one else will.

Try not to get any paint outside the lines of the chip. Keep it very localized.

You may want to put several coats on it to build it up.

If the table is wood and not powder coated, go to the store and get some putty to fill the hole and some fine-grit sandpaper to smooth the surface once it has dried. Once you've done that, you may paint the area according to your taste.

How do I clean my drafting table cover?


You can use any cleaner to get rid of the marks on the cover. I use whatever spray bottle of cleaning fluid I have around the house. Make sure to clean regularly or your papers will get smudged from the pen marks

How can I tell if an old table I inherited is a writing table or a drafting table?


These two tables usually look very similar. If the drafting table was at a flat setting with the height set at regular desk height (maybe 74 cm) then it looks just like a writing table. The way to tell if it's a drafting table is if there is an edge on one of the sides. The edge was used to stop things from sliding off the table when the table was at an angle and it would sometimes hold writing tools.

What does a drafter do?


This is someone who designs and draws plans of structures. They take all the ideas and drawings from the architect and his team of engineers and makes a technical drawing of the structure.
