This is a fantastic drafting table that is functional, great looking, and suitable for all levels of artistic experience and talent. It is very rugged and not too difficult to assemble, which takes about 45-60 minutes. It is very stylish and fits into any modern/rustic living space with like decor and very sturdy to work on. The standard ground shipping was incredibly fast and well packaged. I could not recommend a better table, and this is after extensive research through Dick Blick and other art supply catalogues. Go ahead and buy one, you will not be disappointed! The photo included with this review also has the burgandy drafting table also available from Wal-Mart online.
