Drawing Box

I was talking with Melchior in past comments about needing something to draw on besides my lap and mentioned that I had an idea for a wooden box with a top that could be held up at an angle for drawing on. This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving (which is why I've been remiss on posting for the past week) and I was at my parents with the kids for a few days.

My dad has a shop filled to the brim with metal and wood working tools. Plus he and Mom are renovating their house so there was a lot of scrap wood around. He and I figured out what I needed and built the box. Almost. He needed some small wood screws to attach the box and cover to each other by piano hinge but I expect to have within a week or so. I'll post a picture when I'm finished and if anybody's interested I can do up and post some plans as well. It's very simple but looks like it will be perfect for what I need.

I look forward to seeing a picture when it's done.

Blogger has finally found a way for non-beta bloggers to comment on beta blogs again. I have to preview first.

I have been enjoying your drawings. You are really getting good!

The box sounds great. You can just push everything out of the way and start working. Plus, you can sign it and sell it for big bucks on e-bay when your famous.:)

I'm looking forward to seeing some more sketches!

Oh thank goodness! I've been regretting the switch to beta ever since I made it. I knew I couldn't comment on non-beta blgs but didn't realize the opposite was also true.

I'm glad you've been enjoying the blog...I've got some more sketches to go up soon, nothing finished though. I've been fooling around with Gimp a little too much. :)
