    First as a gift and then for me

    I bought two of these last year for my son-in-law and my best friend--both book lovers and note takers. The lap desks look wonderful, are very comfortable to use, and I've been thinking about them for a year. A few weeks ago, I ordered on for me. Tonight I am ordering one for my husband who had already asked if he could occasionally borrow mine. Now we can both comfortably recline in front of the fireplace, books or writing nicely supported. What could be a better way to spend some time?

    Beautiful and well put together

    I love wood and the lid is beautiful. It seems well put together and the interior compartment works well to keep my correspondence and bills in until I sit down and take care of them. It would work well to keep writing paper and cards in also. I like that there is a separate smaller compartment for pens, pencils or stamps.

    Love This, Love This, Love This

    Ever since getting this for Christmas I haven't lost a bill, tax document or any important paper for that matter. I keep everything I need for paying bills in one place. Stamps, bills, checkbook, evenlopes and pens. The cushion on the botton of it is excellent quality and is very comfortable in your lap. Would definately recommend to all.

    Wonderful and sturdy

    I purchased this item for my husband, and we both fell in love with it. He couldn't wait to use it to grade papers, etc. He keeps his calligraphy paper and some of his pens in the compartment and uses the desk while writing or doing other work. We couldn't be happier with this desk. It is very sturdy and we think the desk itself is quite aesthetically pleasing.

    Excellent Quality , Good Storage Wooden Lap Desk

    This lap desk provides a comfortable surface for writing or reading material. Roomy storage unit with velvet lining. It's over all design works very well toward having a portable, yet, useful wooden lap desk. The cost is unbeatable considering the quality of the merchandise.

    It fell apart

    Can you imagine how horrified I was when my mother opened her christmas gift of this lap desk, and one corner was crushed and the screws fell out of the hinges when she first opened the storage compartment?!!! This is a very poor piece of workmanship.

    Very Nice and Useful

    I am impressed with the quality and usefulness of this Lap Desk. The large storage compartments are useful for keeping supplies organized, and can hold a large amount of supplies. I am very impressed that this model can hold all of my study supplies, so that I don't have to hunt for supplies as I need them. Getting organized has greatly improved my study time and I like the idea of all my supplies in one convenient place. Also something I like to note is that the felt lining prevents the items from rolling around to much which is very nice. Lap desks are a valuable study aid by providing a portable writing surface for the user to study from any where they are comfortable, and keeping all supplies and books together as needed. This is a great gift for any student or aspiring artist to have. This is a lap desk you will be proud to own and use for years to come.

    Love the lap desk

    This lap desk is sturdy and attractive. I love the storage area inside. I like to use it when I'm studying, sitting on the sofa watching TV. (Not suppose to study and watch TV, but somehow it works for me) I'll use it for years to come. Highly recommend it.

    Good quality and good service

    Overall this was what I was looking for in a lap desk. However, one more feature would make this outstanding - it needs a "lip" on the edge to keep books/papers from sliding off while at a tilt.
