The counter lifts up into a drawing board.

Just lift off the 2-by-6 along the back, pull up on the handles, slide the board underneath the raised panel, and--presto!--this countertop becomes a drawing board. Tucson architect Judith Chafee built this clever detail into the craft room of a house she designed in Sonoita, Arizona.

Oak strips band the plastic laminate-covered plywood counter. The front lip keeps the swing-up panel from sliding off the front. Handles cut from the 2-by-6 brace are screwed to the panel from below; since the countertop has a generous depth of 30 inches, the brace can be stored at the back without intruding on the work surface.

The wall-to-wall counter has a built-in utility sink at one end. Overhead, metal-shaded light fixtures hang from ceiling plates.
