Sandbox Desk

A sandbox desk is the combination of an ultra-wide top drawer with a glass top, which creates a unique display space. For the above example I went with a train set, but you can throw anything in there you can imagine. Or just be boring and store office stationary.

Personally I would house a table hockey set. I could see others displaying their Warhammer 40K collection, or a RISK board game. What would you place inside?

Autobot Blaster Mini Bookshelf Stereo System

Autobot Blaster by Dave Delisle

A few years ago they released an MP3 player based on Soundwave, but personally I wish they offered a stereo system based on his Autobot counterpart, Blaster. He would just look at home on the bookshelf or entertainment unit.

It doesn’t even have to be an official product, just the basic shape and colors, and fans could add their own Autobot insignia.

Cassettes are pretty much dead, so a cassette-like display would be fun. Standard features like a CD player, Bluetooth, and iPod dock could also be included. I’d probably include an remote that looked like a cassette.

Ghostbusters Wood Alarm Clock

You might have seen those beautiful wood alarm clocks with displays that peer through the wood in the front. That was the approach here, with the addition of Janine’s “WE GOT ONE” button on top that functions as a snooze button.
