I lost my work area when my son moved back home. I decided to set one up in the dining area and wanted it to be functional as well as nice looking. This desk fit the bill. It is beautiful !

Was able to put it together by myself and I'm 65 years old. The wood is nicely rustic and the metal parts a wonderful gun metal color. I attached a tin tray to the side to hold my paints and brushes. I also purchased the Metal Clamp Task Lamp and rolling Jayden Metal 3 Shelf Units for additional storage. Both from WM.

All and all, I am more than pleased with my new work area. THANK YOU WORLD MARKET.

It's a beautiful drafting table, but I received one that looked like it had been opened and crudely stuffed back into the box. The styrofoam was everywhere in the middle of the box supporting nothing. It looks like someone took it out of the box and tossed the styrofoam back into wherever it would fit. Just complete disarray. I'm so disappointed by this. I've always thought highly of World Market and would never have expected them to ship me something in this condition. To top it all off, the foot of the legs was BROKEN, totally split in half and was taped to the foam wrapping. It looked like someone had taped the broken piece onto the foam wrapping. I've contacted customer service and I am waiting for a response to resolve this issue.

Very Stable No Rocking

By 

from Hampton Virginia

Comments about Drafting Desk:

very stable and doesn't rock. Was very nervous when I read the review and saw the display model at world market rocking back and forth. But I put together and made sure the pegs went all the way through. Once pegs were flush with the leg and not just in the hole it didn't work any more. In fact it doesn't even move now.

Unstable and rocky :(

By 

from Pensacola

Comments about Drafting Desk:

I love how the table looks, but unfortunately the whole top of the table rocks when any pressure is applied. This makes makes it problematic to do anything with the table that requires it to stay still. (i.e. drafting, drawing, painting, or setting a cup or drink on the table when it's laid flat.)

The metal bars that are meant to hold the table in place appear to be too short, or uneven in length. I've attempted to stuff some cardboard into vacant spaces to reduce the rocking, but this has only helped minimally. :(

I've had the table a few years now, and it came this way. Maybe I got a dud? If you buy this product and notice this problem, I highly suggest getting it replaced. I wish I had.

    Comments about Drafting Desk:

    I was in search for a desk to fit on an angled spot in my house, this was perfect! I just purchased this yesterday and I'm SO in love. Assembly was unbelievably easy, took less than an hour alone. I'm in search for a chair that will be high enough for it to use when the table is flat (not just the bar stool they show in the pictures) to use for school work and such. I bought this on sale, plus I had my explorer rewards on top. Adjusting the angle is incredibly easy too because all you have to do is adjust the knobs underneath and you're set! Great value for what you get!

    Beautiful desk

    Comments about Drafting Desk:

    I had been looking a long time for a desk like this, but nothing else looked as distinctive as this drafting desk. Now that we ordered it, it is just as beautiful as the pictures, but it's incredibly short.
    I understand that a lot of people may lay it flat for crafting projects, but my husband uses it for drawing and artwork. He put three inch blocks under each leg and it's still not high enough.
    We realize that the height measurements given are for when the table is laying flat, but when it's angled as it is in the picture, it's quite a different story.
    Just a warning to those who might use this desk as an actual drafting desk, and a request perhaps to show the correct measurements in the description.
