Drawing Boards

Desktop & Free-standing

A drawing board is a desktop or free-standing table which typically features a parallel motion or sliding ruler. The ruler runs full width across the board surface and can be freely moved up or down across the working area whilst maintaining a horizontal aspect. This allows the straight edge of the ruler to be used as a datum when using other drawing tools such as rulers, protractors or set squares.
