36 unique One-half sheet clipboards made from scraps that have been accumulating on the corner of my shop for the past year. Some of the various woods include——Cocobolo, Walnut, Redheart, Yellowheart, Purpleheart, Zebrawood, Bloodwood, Paduk, Juniper, Cherry, Fir, Birdseye Maple, Teak, African Mahogany, Sapele, Ipe, Brazilian cherry, Marblewood, Maple, Leopardwood, Tiger Maple, Birdseye Maple, Lati and Bocate. I am sure there are a few that I missed, but such is life.

I decided to make a few folding stands for them as wellthe smaller one holds 9 and the larger one holds 12. They fold down for easy transport and storage. They are made from Southern Yellow Pine. (They are not stained in the attached photo’s.

Thanks for looking.

That is an awesome collection of clipboards, and everyone different.
Congratulations on a great job and I’m sure they will sell like hot cakes.
Thanks for sharing,

My students are just finishing up producing and selling clipboards to our faculty and staff. How much do you usually sell them for? Just trying to gauge how well we set our prices. Thanks

Your designs are much more spectacular than ours.

These are all beautiful, Jeff. It’s a great idea for either selling or giving.
