My son and I both need help to stay organized. I made several of these little dry erase boards for my own desk, but put magnets on the backs. Not sure of my son’s set up at the desk he works at from home everyday, so just made a small version that doesn’t take up much real estate. Had I been thinking well, I would have also made a hole in the base to put a pen…alas.
The base is 3.5" x 2.5" x .75". Two layers of thick black acrylic with one layer of thick glass green acrylic in the middle…stuck together with 3M tape.
Cute! But, no it wasn’t intentional. My intent was to keep my fingers off the writing when I pick them up. It may have been unnecessary but you know…if you don’t do something, you wish you had done it after the fact.
what you said inspired me…you could cut the note boards in any shape just for fun…animals, flowers, coffee cups , etc.
I’m afraid that would be my nightmare. I made several of these with magnets on them for my son in law who designs tower crane platforms and is always scribbling some engineering stuff on post it notes, etc. He uses an old, all steel desk, so in a way, his entire desk can be dry-erase.
I bought a roll of self-sticking magenetic strip which I placed around my desk in strategic places, however the stickiness doesn’t hold very well on wood…so every once in awhile (like this morning) I find part of the strip and some of the note boards laying in a pile. That part of the process needs some rethinking on my part, now.
