A flat counter becomes an angled drawing board.

This budding designer occasionally needs to use a drawing board that angles upward to make drafting easier. His 22-3/4- by 47-inch board, shown here, spends most of its time flush with the rest of a 10-foot-long counter. When needed, the board lifts out and two plywood braces are positioned to support it.

The L-shaped braces make sturdy supports for the drawing board. Each 21-inch-long brace has a 4-1/2-inch-high front and an 8-inch-high back. They butt against 4-inch-wide bases, which rest on slats spanning the opening beneath the top and store in the 4-1/2-inch-deep cavity.

Design was by Portland architect James Oliver.
