iSkelter, maker of a number of wooden Apple accessories and other products, has introduced two new LapDesks for Apple’s new iPad Pro. Both the Canvas Creator and Canvas Pro are large wooden trays with cutouts for an iPad Pro and other accessories, designed to be rested on one’s lap during use. Canvas Creator has space for an iPad Pro, an Apple Pencil, and another display slot that could be used to keep the iPad Pro or another device at a fixed viewing angle, in landscape or portrait mode. Canvas Pro loses the Pencil slot in favor of an extended space to rest something in one’s right hand, and also has the display slot, and another slot at the top that can be used to view an iPhone or another device. Both LapDesks are $100, and are both on sale for $68 at the time of this writing.
We think the Canvas Creator is probably preferable for most iPad Pro users, as it’s a bit more compact and has a slot that fits Apple Pencil perfectly. Canvas Creator is 14.5” x 11.5” x .75”, while the width of Canvas Pro extends to 18.5” but keeps the same length and height. The bamboo LapDesks are handsome, and wouldn’t be out of place in an office or the home. They’re not very portable, so you’d probably be keeping Canvas Creator or Canvas Pro in the same general area most of the time.
