    Drawing board table stands

    Unique design gives stability to your drawing board on any table top. At 12 degrees, the drawing board sits at the perfect angle for watercolour painting and drawing. Each stand is independent and they can be set as far apart as required. The moulding on the front does two jobs. The upper part holds the drawing board and prevents it from sliding towards you and the lower part prevents the stand from pushing away from you across the table. At 14 inches from front to back, the stands will comfortably support a board up to 18 inches deep with an overhang of approximately 3 inches at the back. Hand made from solid wood, all fixings glued and screwed together. Supplied unvarnished. PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 21 DAYS FOR DELIVERY
