These tables are great because they are inexpensive and light. I chose this company because you can move the top board to different positions. However, I am an amateur artist so if you are a professional, maybe you should invest in a higher end table. These tables are built well but are smaller than others and come with less special features. This is great for me because I don't want any features. Also my apartment is really small so I got a great folding up one.

SOURCE: As a student, should I buy a drafting table?

I would say hold off. Drafting tables are not so common anymore. People who used to use them now use computer programs. Also, they are expensive for a student. However, you definitely need a table to work at. Most people find it easier to work with a slightly slanted surface so you may want a small drawing board as well.

How do I pick out a drafting table?


The first step is deciding how much money you want to spend. You can find cheap drafting tables for around $150 or really fancy ones for around $800 such as this one http://www.restorationhardware.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?categoryId=cat1850041&productId=prod1617041

A Hann drawing table can cost upward of $1000.

The second step is if you want the table for a short or long period. If you want one for a short-term period then it is wiser to buy a cheaper one than to invest in a great one. If you plan to buy a new one in a couple years, then go for a cheaper one. Cheap and short term tables are generally folding tables. Long term and more costly tables are those with four sturdy legs. The last thing to consider is space. Foldable tables take up much less space than the big, sturdy tables.

How do I make the drawing paper stay in place on the drafting table?


The way I do this is with magnets because my table surface is magnetic. If yours isn't then you can buy drafting tape.
