I currently need to find a job, am taking five classes, need to prepare a speech, have 2 informational interviews, and need to prepare for a business competition. I am extremely busy, so I decided that it was more important to create a base for our dry-eraser and markers. In front of me was a cork board and to my left I had plenty of supplies, including resume paper, thumb tacks, a ruler, scissors, and a mechanical pencil. My engineering mind starting working.

Once I finished drawing the outline, I started cutting and bending. As you can see from the picture, it is not a terribly difficult project. That is the true beauty of this design.
After finishing the base, I tested it and it was a success. My friends didn't realize it was paper until I pointed that fact out. Now, my design sits proudly in our office doing a very good job of supporting our eraser and markers. I am a proud man!
Once again, I have proved that procrastination can actually be a good thing. I am super busy today, but instead decided to share my design with you folks.
If you actually design a base for yourself, with the same materials, please send me a message and show me. Maybe, one day, we can make a website for people to waste time and learn. Oh wait, that already exists. It's called reddit.
