Bed Desk

We’ll save you the trouble of watching “Creator Inventor” Dave Drake’s manically enthusiastic infomercial for the innovative Bed Desk.

Drake designed this contraption while in career retraining after a serious back injury ended his first career as a crane operator.

In spite of the ginsu knife video marketing, this is a good small-space product: portable, well-made, nice-looking, collapsible, functional, and versatile. Suffice it to say that it has a thousand uses other than facilitating comfortable reading and laptop use in bed. Drake’s many suggestions include cookbook rest, speaker’s podium, and artist’s easel.

Available, as far as we can tell, exclusively here.
