Recommended Posts

Ok let's admit it, most of us who frequent this prat of the forum are stationary junkies. Now no excuse and need no explanation either. And let's also admit we like to tinker around with all of them ... some do their own pen case, , some do their own notebook etc etc .. so what's your planned hack / DIY / project for 2020 ???

 

Well for me, its going to be a months if not year long project .. I just about give up on trying to find a decent priced todays production of a traveling writing slope ; they can be had but usually only as custom order and let say luxurious price .. so I figure forge it I am going to hack my own .. no I am not that good at carpentry to go do it all but I figure I would hack an artist / painters traveling case type easel to made one .. just order one and then some raw material for the writing surface .. shall see how it goes

 

Do you had a stationary project you aim to do this year and let's talk about it

I started messing around with writing slopes in 2012 I had one that needed restoration and wanted wanted to learn how they were made.

Rather than make one from scratch I would suggest that you look for something that needs some work.

If you really want to make your own there are a number of tricks you can use to get the angles right I would be happy to help you if you want to have a go.

This is where I started..

Most of the time I just use a 14" aluminum clipboard on my lap. It's a light gray, so the lines on my guide sheet show thru just fine. It's not very stationary, but it hold my stationery well.

My planned hack is to make 2 pen trays. I have the wood. I have the right size router bit. Now I just need the weather to be warm enough that I'm willing to brave the garage for long enough to do the work. :)

 

Something like these, but my wood isn't so fancy (I'm just going to put them in a desk drawer, no need for fancy):

Wow! You are all so ambitious! Truthfully, I don't have the room for a writing slope. I have two tables - one for my computer/monitors and the other is my "writing desk" which is small and contains my pen cabinet and a lamp. That is about all that will fit so that I still have space to write.

 

Since I am not a calligrapher, I don't see a need for me.

 

But, I applaud your ambition, and I say GO FOR IT!
