recycled drawing board

A South African design idea
Ideas are normally rendered hard-boiled if sat on to long - hence i would rather share them.
As draughting is a fundamental skill which is being lost to computer aided draughting packages. it would great to promote the age old skill of draughting using a drawing board manufactured from recycled materials.
these boards can be manufactured low cost and donated to satellite draughting schools - which harvest draughting talent from townships through competitions. the talent is then fed into an accredited draughting school as part of there commitment to empowering previously disadvantaged talent.
this is a worthwhile venture and can be run by SAID - South African Institute for Draughting - each talented youngster harvested can further be sponsored by government and overseas investors looking to make a difference in Africa.
