L. Francis Herreshoff's Drawing Table

Yesterday I had a request from a retired naval architect for plans from a model I did a long time ago of L. Francis Herreshoff's drawing table. He designed and built this around 1930. The top is 9 feet long and the drawer is designed to hold large sheets of paper and it can be opened from either side. The thing is also designed to be knocked down for moving and it's held together with tapered pins.

Plans were created from the model in LayOut. Full sized patterns for the curves. This is the first sheet.
