A flat surface with a movable parallel bar, used when drafting by hand.
Lightweight, semitransparent paper used to quickly sketch out ideas. Affectionately known as "trace" or "trash," and less affectionately known as "bumwad."
Used to secure tracing paper to the drawing board. I usually store a few of these on the elbow of my sweater.
Sure, it's a pencil and a sharpener, but it's so much better than that. I stole these from my father 20 years ago.
Used to draw circles and poke small holes in the paper.
Used in combination with the parallel bar on the drafting table to draw straight lines and angles.
Used to measure architectural and engineering drawings. We tend not to draw things full size.
The best pens ever.
Used to add color to a drawing moments before the client arrives. Also, the fumes are very soothing.
No self-respecting architect is ever more than 3 feet away from a sketchbook.
Now this is my most useful tool.
Well, actually this is my most useful tool.
Sadly, she's not very useful.
