I've just finished a small project for an artist who needed a drawing board made but wanted something a little bit different — something so that 'I feel inspired to do my best work when I sit down at it'. He is going to use it at an antique mahogany desk so it needed to harmonise with that.
Fortunately I have a small stock of really exquisite 50 year old mahogonny, and this seemed like a chance to use a bit of it. The T-square is made of mahgoanny and walnut. There are a couple of subtle beads for decoration and it has a shellac finish. We were both very happy with the result.
