I am personally a big believer in whiteboards. I love being able to sketch whatever I want, write down to do lists or other notes, and then erase or adjust. The nice thing is that it promotes decluttering. When you are done with a note, erase it, and its gone. No papers left behind.
In my designing and overall organization, I use my handy whiteboard often. It is a good size (same size as pictured in renderings), but it is kind of awkward to really sketch on. I either have to clear everything off my desk and lay it flat (which gives me a weird angle), or pick it up, scoot away from my desk, place it on my lap, and begin to draw (which also results in a weird angle). Either way, it's inconvenient to readily use, and when I do it, I often have a bad angle.
I understand that quick notes are one thing... But I really like to DRAW on mine, like really layout designs and such. So having a firm angle is important to me.
Given this problem and my recent weird desire to be a furniture designer, the whiteboard lovers desk was born. The desk utilizes two whiteboards at once. The top more vertical one would be used as reference, and the lower one would be for active drawing.
As my desk at home is against the wall, I will often sketch with the board on my lap for a bit, then set it up against the wall to refer to as I sketch on the computer. By having two whiteboard holders, I can easily switch one whiteboard back and forth, or use two and switch them as needed.
The placement of the board holder next to the computer allows for a quick swivel back and forth between the computer and the boards (left handers could switch the board holder to the other side.
I'll probably play around with the idea some more... but in the mean time... here's what I got! Enjoy.
