Making a Cheap Drawing Board

Cheap and effective!

When I moved in the beginning of this past summer I got rid of my drafting table. It was difficult to adjust right, took up too much space, and was really not worth keeping around. The downside is that now it's a little awkward drawing tall pieces on my flat desk, and I kinda miss drawing on an inclined surface. And so, I present to you "How to Make a Cheap Drawing Board." For those of you following along at home, the ingredients are:
2 Corks
1 bottom of an IKEA ottoman
Gorilla Glue
Clamp

Measure out what incline you want the board to be, use sandpaper to rough up the
contact points, and clamp down the cork the glued cork accordingly.

Keep kittens away from glue.So far so good! I test both of corks for strength, and it sure seems like they'll hold.Tada! I now have a nice drawing board to make up for my lack of a drafting table
