Beautiful Three Wood Custom Lap Desk

Check out this ridiculously reasonably priced lap desk designed for photographer Rogier van Bakel by Etsy seller and woodworker, Nancy Klemm. Made of three different woods, cherry, maple and bubinga, the custom built setup holds Rogier's Wacom tablet, wireless keyboard and touch trackpad in tidy fashion. Considering how well constructed this looks, alongside the custom job, the $140 shipped price seems like a steal...

What I needed was a large lap desk that would let me keep all three devices together. To my surprise, I couldn't find one -- but I did, fortunately, come across the work of St. Louis-based woodworker Nancy Klemm on Etsy. After I sent her a quick sketch, this is what Nancy custom-built for me out of cherry, maple, and bubinga wood

Nancy also sells these magnetic wooden grocery list holders, and we only wonder if she could customize these to specs to hold our cell phone when not in use (perhaps with a cutout at the bottom for the USB charging cable to snake through).
