A desk, fashioned from an air hockey table, with the
fan reversed so the fan sucks air in through the
pinholes, trapping paper on the desk.
A simple plenum chamber under the desk surface will
prevent inconsistent pressures being generated
directly over the fan.
No longer will pieces of
paper flutter off my desk and
hide between desk and wall.
Don't forget to install the emergency backup system...

How to build your own
vacuum screen printing table [xenzag, Jan 23 2013]
||Who writes any more? I doubt I'd physically write more
than 5% of the words I record and writing is a large part
of what I do for a living.
||Put a cutting mat or blotter over a few of the holes.
||Make the desktop out of a microporous material
(fiberboard or sintered aluminum), it will pass
enough air for a vacuum while still being to small for
a pen/pencil (except maybe a really fine mechanical
pencil) to penetrate.
||That would work... I was going the recycling path, with an
air hockey table.
||Now when a fly lands on your desk, it won't have chance of escaping
before you swat it.
||//who writes anymore!//
yeah what he said with a hint of shame on you
"Planet Hater!" But [+] for using your noggin to
control your earth carnage paper wasting.
||Start with the air hockey table and lay a sheet of
something on top of it, your new
material is limited to a single sheet,
which is completely recyclable at the desk's end of
life if you go with the aluminum.
||This has been used in silk screen-printing using a vacuum cleaner.
||Hi, flaps, by the way, where's the uniboner? I like this,
but I'm afraid it might interfere with my fake paper
shuffle-ling routine that I go to on a daily basis.
Wouldn't it make that a little harder to do, oh wise
||I remember this one. Is this a resurrected classic
from previous UB incarnations?
||Yes. It's one I did in about 2004, I think.
