Multi-Kid Drafting Table

Materials: Vika Byske Table Tops, Vika Moliden Legs

Description: The table tops were cut to a width that our kids could reach across. They are fastened to a 2×3 frame with hinges to allow their slope to be adjustable. The legs were fastened to this frame and braced for added stability.

A gap is left between the table tops for a lower shelf to hold the Ikea containers for pencils, pens, etc. Each child can have their side of the table at the slope they want depending on what kind of project they are doing. The Ikea jr chairs are the perfect height for this table.

    Hate making profiles cause there is either nothing to say about me or too much to say! I’ll try. I have ten children, 25 plus grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. I have been married for almost 46 years to the same baby daddy. I am a strong conservative Christian and I love to decorate and organize! To me, less is more. Unless you’re talking about kids. In that case, more is ALWAYS more!
