Is the straight edge removable?
Yes. It is easy to remove the straight edge from the wires.

What is the difference between Counter-weight and Cross-wire parallel motions?
Counter-weight parallel motions rely on a weighted mechanism to stop the straight edge sliding to the bottom of the board when the table is at an angle. Cross-wire (or continuous wire) parallel motions rely on friction to grip to board. Read our article on What is the difference between parallel motions? for more information.

Can I use a compass with Papyroboard board cover?
Papyroboard is a hard wearing vinyl material which protects your board surface. Although it is hard wearing, compass points may still find their way through if used regularly. We would recommend a cutting mat to protect the board surface.

I have just received my Big Orchard A2 Priory Counterweight Drawing Board and it is well built and came securely packaged. Thank you to all at Big Orchard for the time and effort you put in to make this purchase such a worthwhile investment

Excellent service and a lovely plan chest. Sadly it had arrived slighty damaged in transit (not Big Orchard's fault), but they went above and beyond to rectify the problem at our convenience. Thoroughly recommended.

I can't say enough about this company, when I first started in the garden design arena, I purchased an a0 parallel motion drawing board which is brilliant. I have spent hours drafting designs on this board and we see me through many more years. Highly recommended.

SUPERB plan chest! From the minute we placed the order to receipt of the beautifully made plan chest, everything went smoothly. It is a beautiful piece of furniture, and will probably become an heirloom! Well done and thank you, The Big Orchard.

I ordered the A2 Priory Drawing Board Cross-wire and love it. Packaged well and works wonderfully. I am not an architect... I use it for water colour painting as it is wipeable and has adjustable angles, so is is far to sophisticated for my needs rin reality. as I don't use the wire part and level/ruler other than it holds my paper/pad in place. Maybe it would make sense to make a simpler one for artists like me!

Bought a 10 drawer plan chest for personal use. The 2 Steves that run the co. could not have been more helpful - & kind. They went way beyond the necessary 😊👍👍👍👍 The product is excellent; exactly what I needed, to resolve ALL my art materials. 🎨🖼
