We’re not saying it’s the first or only desk organizer¬†and gadget tamer that’s graced these pages, but Deskpal does a good job at cleaning up the working areas of people with, frankly, lots of stuff. Starting with a solid block of timber, Deskpal takes shape via CNC machining and then hand sanding and polishing for a finish that brings out the beautiful grain of either the Tasmanian oak (shown) or Torrified Ash. Dual rear-positioned slots hold most any smartphone and tablet, a wool felt sandwich grips your favorite pen in upright position, and two shallow trays swallow up everything else.
