Re: easel or table?
I have a very heavy tilted drawing table that was made by an ex boyfriend in highschool shop class, back when he was thinking of becoming an architect. Instead, he became a beer guzzling bum-sometimes-construction-worker, so I inherited the table. He had considerable carpentry talent, so I feel pretty darn lucky to have this thing. First of all, it is made for technical drawing so it's huge, and second, it is very sturdy, made extremely well - not flimsy or likely to fall apart ever. One of the minuses is that the thing is so dang heavy, being solid ash, that it takes 8 people to move it.
