Galen Everyday Pad and Rhodia top-stapled pads are known as the best fountain pen-friendly and useful notepads. At Galen Leather, we love to use these pads as we're big fans of fountain pens.

We've once again collaborated with Walden Woodworkers Co to make this vintage-inspired notepad holder. We're confident you are going to love it as much as we do! Its basic, clean, and slim design makes it the perfect addition to your work desk or office space. Choose from mahogany or walnut wood. The brass screws can be loosened to refill the notepads.

To write on the backside of the notepad you will need to take out and turn over the notepad just as you would any regular notepad.

Exactly what I needed!

Amazing quality and some nice elegance in a basic writing tablet. I take a lot of notes during my work day and this holds my notepads perfectly! It came with an Everyday Pad with Tomoe River paper that I am excited to try as well. Galen Leather never disappoints!

Another Excellent Galen Product

The Note Board is fantastic. The finish is lovely and has a solid feel to it. Also, can be used to pin down an A5 notebook if it's roughly the same width as a Rhodia pad, which is incredibly useful if you have a notebook that is temperamental about laying flat! The Chicago screws lift the wood plate quite high and then apply even pressure to hold things in place. Very happy! Also, comes with the everyday pad too, which is amazing in its own right!

Over the Moon!

I absolutely love my Walnut Noteboard! Coupled with the Tomoe River Notepad, it's the perfect combination, it gets used daily! I am very impressed with the build quality and highly recommend it! The shipping was incredibly fast to the UK as well! I now have three of the walnut wooden desk accessories and I love them all! I think a washi holder needs to be added to the collection next!
