This is a Steve Ramsey – Woodworking for Mere Mortals inspired project. It is a clipboard box. This one was my prototype and I will use it to help organize the notes for my shop projects. You can store papers in it, use it as a clipboard, or tilt it to different angles to view a document. I made mine with a whiteboard top to give it an added flexibility to jot down quick notes. The clipboard and box lid work with rare earth magnets.
This was made out of hickory. It was the first time I had used hickory and it does want to tear out, but I found I had pretty good luck with it. I made my share of mistakes on this project, but I am getting better at recovering from them. I plan on making some more of these as it is pretty handy and organizes all my papers. We could certainly use on in the kitchen and in my office.
Here is Steve’s video. This was one of his earlier projects and is over 4 years old now:
