A custom-made clipboard is easy to make and is a wonderful gift. Used as a portable writing surface or as a lap desk, it is also a satisfying way to use up short boards that are too good to throw away. Ripped to the thickness you want, the pieces need only to be edge glued and finished.
This gold-colored plated-steel spring clip comes with a calculator and two adhesive strips for mounting it (or anything else such as a plaque, photo, etc.) in the 2 1/8" × 3 3/8" (54mm × 86mm) recessed panel. The strong spring, a paper stop behind the clip edge, a pen/pencil holder with 1/4" to 3/4" capacity, and color-matching machine screws and cap nuts for mounting are all features not found with other board clips.
