sitting on my bed trying to read and take notes at the same time (isn't the bed the best place to pretend to study?) i was struck by how i'd like to have a lap desk, instead of precariously balancing book and paper on my knee. i remember seeing these things in catalogs and such when i was little, and a google search does yield some rather, well, boring looking lap desks. pottery barn teen has a lap desk (http://ww1.pbteen.com/cat/pip.cfm?src=schi1%7Cp1%7Cwlap%5Csdesk&pkey=sa1s00desk%2Clap&gids=p371_
however, it seems absurd to pay $29 for it. so my question:
1) does anyone know of a store that sells un-boring lap desks?
2) has anyone ever made
a lap desk and wants to share the result/how-to?
if i get the chance, i might try to build a lap desk myself, but for now, i thought i'd ask some clever crafty folk.
