The Story

The No. 10 Writing Board Lap Desk is perfect for the armchair author, road warrior journalist, or back porch internet surfer. Four brass screws spaced across the top hold an assortment of papers, while four leather straps secure your writing instrument. There's also a pencil gutter and two small leather corner pockets to hold cards or notes. A copper tube at the bottom prevents books or papers from sliding off the board. The Writing Board is also handy for supporting your laptop or iPad®. Two rare earth magnets on each side hold paper clips, pens, scissors, etc. May be personalized with three initials on brass plate.

Made in USA.

16" H x 20" W x ½" D wooden board framed in American cherry. Weight: 3 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful for drawing I prefer to draw and paint on my lap, and the features on this board are very practical. It is well made overall. I may replace the top "bar" with a sturdier metal piece one day, but that is my only quibble. I would buy this again to have more than one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Piece of Wood! I was looking for a really expensive piece of wood (preferably, sanded and finished!) that would allow me to place a piece of lumber across my lap. This fits the bill. It's a piece of wood that's flat and, in its exquisite craftsmanship, remains flat on my lap ... so I can have a piece of flat wood on my lap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made! I use the writing board for reading and taking notes with paper fastened by the brass rivets. It suits almost ever quality as a regular desk, so why not have a lap desk?
