What to look for in a drawing board. The development of accurate manual drawings requires a drawing board with a precision drawing surface. The surface must be soft enough so that pencils can easily draw lines. The surface must also be perfectly flat and smooth for drafting. There can be no holes or warped places on the board it affects drafting and drawing. Any bumps or holes in the surface would throw off the accuracy of drawn lines. It is important for the edge of the board to be straight and smooth for the head of the T-square or parallel rule. Some drawing boards are covered with a special vinyl drawing board cover such as boco or vyco for protection.
