Sturdy, I like it from Kirkland, WA on 09/20/2015 – Verified Buyer
Easy to assemble, adjustable knobs on the sides so you can tilt the table top completely flat. You can use it flat as a standing table. When it's flat or completely level, it is about 32.5" high. Office chairs won't go that high, so an adjustable bar stool or drafting chair is needed, unless you plan to keep it tilted like a drafting table, then a regular chair will work. You can also tilt it completely flat like a chalkboard.
This is a vintage design and looks good in person. I ordered the 36x24 and it will hold a regular sized watercolor sheet. It does have a groove that runs around the table top, and I found when using it for large watercolor sheets, laying a large clear acrylic sheet over the top protects the table when crafting or painting.

Looks great, easy to assemble from Saugerties, NY on 11/13/2015 – Verified Buyer
I'm an architect and still do my initial designs by hand before transferring them to computer, I was looking for a new drafting desk that had a little more style than the old aluminum framed desk I've been using for the past fifteen years. Right from the box the desk looks great, has a real aged look. seems to be durable and was quick to assemble. The only downfall is that there aren't a lot of different angles to choose from and I generally like my desk halfway between the hole for flat and the next one up, but five minutes with a drillbit will fix this issues. Looking forward to many years of design duty. Cheers!

Great quality desk; great price! from Jackson, MI on 11/08/2015 – Verified Buyer
We saw a similar desk at a local retail store being sold for almost twice this price. We were surprised that shipping would be free for such a heavy piece. The desk arrived quickly and was easy to assemble. The wood is nice quality, the tilt feature functions correctly and the finished desk looks just like the picture. It looks great, like it really could be a vintage desk, and fits very nicely into our overall home décor.

Pros: Nice quality, easy to assemble, great price, free shipping, arrived quickly
Cons: Had to assemble it, but really, with free shipping could not expect it to arrive assembled. Was pretty easy to put together in any case.

Excellent drafting table from Toledo, OH on 12/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
I am very pleased with the craftsmanship of this item. The only thing that would make it absolutely perfect is if the height was adjustable and/or it included an appropriate chair to accommodate the height of this specific table. Even though the item showed free 2 day shipping; it was not. I did receive prompt responses to my inquiries about it and was told only some items qualify for this even though this was labeled with a counting down clock showing how long I had to snag this offer. The shipping was my only negative, but I appreciated the curtesy of the customer service rep and know it isn't their fault.

I would highly recommend this for the artist in your family...there isn't a better bargain for the quality of this piece.

Quality just not what was expected from Harrisburg, PA on 11/18/2014 – Verified Buyer
Ok, part of the problem was me. I did not pay attention to the dimensions of this drafting table. I saw that there were 2 sizes and went with the larger size. The larger size is very tiny. Also, the height is very short. In the picture it appears the chair is at a tall height, or that you could stand in front of the drafting table to review plans. You can only sit at the drafting table. I admit, this was my mistake as I should have concentrated better on the dimensions listed.

In regards to quality, it just isnt there. The attachable pencil catch was bowed so badly that my husband had to put in to additional screws to pull the middle up and make it straight. Also, there is a splintered knick on the top right corner of the table.

Overall I'm very disappointed. We ordered other furniture through wayfair (different vendor) and the quality is excellent and definitely superior. We were just expecting a lot more I guess.

Great piece from Lake Oswego, OR on 01/13/2015 – Verified Buyer
Love that this is solid wood. Looks great in my room. It wasn't too much more difficult to put together than IKEA furniture. If you're not good at IKEA furniture assembly, you may find this one a bit more challenging.

The lip at the bottom could have gone all the way from one side to the other for me. I like to be able to set supplies along the bottom lip. Right now, only room to support my drawing pad in a tilted position.

I wish you could change the height of the surface because if it's flat it is a high surface, but if it's tilted it makes the surface shorter. A chair that has adjustable heights is necessary with this one if you plan to adjust it into different tilting positions from time to time.

I also wish there weren't designated holes in the half moon tilting pieces that the side knobs need to screw into to make it secure. I've noticed others have a better tilting solution with the whole middle section cut out so you can choose any position on the half-moon tilting piece. This one only has around 7 pre-drilled holes evenly spaced apart from one side to the other which makes your secure tilting options very limited. The pre-drilled tilting holes aren't very thought out either, as I would only want to use the middle one for a flat level top or the next one to tilt for drawing, but even the next pre-drilled hole puts the surface in a tilt that is tilted too much downwards. The angle makes it hard to keep more than just your drawing pad on the surface. My pencils and all fall out of my case of drawing materials if I try to set it on the surface at that angle. I am currently using it in between those two holes. I am not even using the holes, which I hope stays secure in it's position anyways. We'll see I guess.

This drafting table looks just like the picture from West Chester, PA on 12/24/2014 – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
We bought this drafting table for our son who is a young illustrator in New York City and just bought a studio apartment. My husband put it together. He usually complains when ever he has to put something together, but he this one together in less than 20 minutes and we all admired the result. Although it was inexpensive compared to other drafting tables we were looking at, the wood looks and feels like a much more expensive product. Our son is thrilled with it, uses it often, and it fits in with his somewhat retro decor.

Warning, not height adjustable AT ALL and too high for sitting from Unspecified on 02/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
This table is nicely finished, well made and would be great. Except for a RIDICULOUS design flaw. It is not in any way height adjustable, and the height at which some fool chose to fix it is too high for sitting in a standard chair, and too low for standing. I am at 5'7" pretty much average height. Perhaps if I was to buy an unusually high-adjusting office chair and raise it high enough to where my feet were not touching the floor (extremely uncomfortable) it might be the right height. Otherwise, it is either jammed up in my face or the surface has to be tilted at an extreme angle -- NOT the angle pictured here. And, I need to use it with normal existing chairs. So the table is unusable. Also, the design is such that there is really no way to alter it yourself, even with carpentry, to a reasonable height. Every other drawing/drafting table I have ever used or seen is height adjustable to some degree. They could have at least tried sitting a human being (who is not 6'6" sitting on a bar stool) at the table before deciding to market it. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED with this table, and not happy having spent a lot of time putting it together only to discover this.

Love my new drafting table from Cincinnati, OH on 11/13/2015 – Verified Buyer
This table is better than I expected. I always read reviews before I buy online and this table lives up to the reviews. It was easy to assemble (about an hour with the Allen wrench provided and a Philips head screw driver). It came with all of the parts, undamaged I might add, and shipped in two days. It is very nice, looks more expensive than it is, and I would definitely recommend it.

Pros: Love the look, nice quality
Cons: None
