Don’t Buy A Drafting Desk Until You READ This



More and more people are delving into the wonderful world of art.  And more and more people, like you, are wondering about what equipment and supplies to purchase. I’ve included a basic list of supplies needed to get you started on the artistic journey.

But for now,  this article will  focus on drafting desks.

First, should you buy an easel or a desk?

It depends, on your comfort level and the amount of drawing and painting you do. The neat thing about pencil art you don’t need fancy easels or large desks to draw on. Any old table, desk or chair will do. All that’s needed is a flat firm surface that provides good support when drawing.

But if you want to take your art to the next level then you should consider at least a drafting table that has an adjustable desk top.

Some artists like to stand when drawing. Others like to sit. And some like to do both. However, if you are still experimenting with the perfect drawing position then drafting desks are great options for the aspiring artist.

Should I sit or Stand when Drawing?

Most Drafting desks have tilting desk tops which are great options for people that want to vary their drawing positions. Depending on the size of the desk and the angle of the top you can even stand up and draw.

I use a drafting desk with a top that angles from 0 to 60 degrees to complete various projects such as drawing, writing and wrapping presents. The drafting desk is the most versatile solution to my space issues, since I don’t have a big room.

The drafting desks can accommodate the artist, writer, and anyone that works from home. It’s a great option for people that are budget conscious and have limited space.

There are lot of drafting desks to choose from and all do the same thing: provide a working surface for various projects. The only differences are the materials and the size of the desk.

As you can imagine, the larger and better quality materials the higher the price.

It can be used for drawing, writing and other projects. The illustrations for assembly are easy to follow. Every part is numbered or lettered and the desk can be assembled in under an hour.


The shelving space is limited. Which can be a draw back for storing files or large books. The desk surface isn’t waterproof and will bubble up if liquids are spilt on it.

Overall impression of the Little Tree Drawing Table

For the price you can’t go wrong. The Liittle Tree Table is an attractive piece of furniture that can fit any home décor. The table comes in different colors and wood grain patterns. The desk top angles to a maximum of 60 degrees which is more than enough to do art work, writing and other projects.  The surface board surface can be fragile and easily scratches when cutting or slicing. Be sure to use a cutting board or mat when using crafts blades and razors. Be sure to keep liquids off the desk or wipe off immediately if spilled. .
