Post subject:  Your Go study space

There was a thread in GD about go study spaces that I really liked. I've always wanted to have a space to have my go board out and be able to leave a game out.

And I've finally got one! :)

Here it is:

I'm looking forward to seeing yours. :)

P.S. -Mods, Don't know if this fits here or general go chat better.

I really need a new camera. Ok, I think that's better.

I had a board out on my coffee table where I'd have problems from the weekly Ing lectures on KGS. But any horizontal space in my apartment quickly becomes cluttered with crap. :sad:

This is in the office. Now if I can find another 6k in my town, I'll be happy.

I've got two desks in an L shape in my home-office, and at the far end is where I put my goban. I have a book stand behind it, so I can lean my books, Go Worlds or iPad, and room for my stones in bowls to the right. To the lift is a slim bookcase with my go books.

*drools*

Edit: I've seen a legged board protected by a clear plastic cover, and I was interested in having something of the kind for mine, to keep the game undisturbed. Does anyone have something similar, or know how to get/make one?

P.S. - BTW, bonus points for anyone that guesses what game I have on my board. :p

This is apparently the kind of study space you will need if you want to improve from 9 kyu to 9 kyu in just one year's time.

I use a real board for H2H games and teaching games, but when I'm studying, I use this setup. Thank heavens for wireless mice.

Yes, I really need a camera.
Yes, it's in my closet - for some reason I find it easier to study in tight space, less distractions.
Yes, that is a 9d vs. 9d game I'm going over.

Is it any wonder I don't get any studying done?

Mad props for the pink book though, it's one of the best books on shape out there, hands down.

And it matches the lunch-box.

+1 for The Pink Book.

...But I must beg to differ with fwiffo; the muted magenta of the tin box causes an irreconcilable color clash. The black bag, however, nicely offsets a brash color like bubble-gum pink.
