    S/he did it right the first time (i.e., s/he didn't need didn't go back).

    There is no actual answer, but please keep guessing. It'll be interesting to see what you all come up with.

    (S)he probabely DID have to go back for something else, but then decided it would be convenient to make a board to go back to

    Come to think of it how did the inventor of the wheel get to work?

    (And he can't have walked because pavements weren't invented until cars came along..)

    The evolution of the drawing board:

    The drawing dirt on the ground
    The drawing cave wall
    The drawing stone tablet
    The drawing wax tablet
    The drawing papyrus
    The drawing scroll
    The drawing manuscript
    And finally...
    The drawing board

    There was a time before sliced bread? How did people even survive? They were probably too busy slicing their own bread to worry about great inventions.

    since a drawing board is just a piece of stone... you could say he got back to a cavewall... so you could call it a portable cavewall

    He invented something to draw on the drawing board with, and then realised that the lack of sliced bread was diving him insane, aaaaah.

    I wonder if he tried to write on the drawing board with sliced bread??? Then he probably found something to write properly with.

    Gwahoo
