I inherited a lot of old drawing boards (schools used to teach drafting)
we recycled old pull down maps that were being discarded. By cutting
maps just larger than the boards and tacking the maps face down we made
clay boards to work on. This gives us a good working surface and it keeps
the mess contained to a small area. As students come into class the
thing they do is get out a board to work on.
Just an idea, Woody in KC
