I like the corner aspect. The finish is easy enough to taylor to your own preference, but it's a tad too rough and ready for my liking.
However, the straps could be positioned in such a way as to divide the work area. So a fixed area for laptop and associated gubbins, then an area for writing or sketching (we remember such prosaic acticvities) etc etc.
Excellent work though. Right off to look at the corners of my house.
