Inspired by: Well, I was inspired when I decided to install a pantry in my kitchen. Without any construction or home renovation experience, I decided to embark on a journey to install a panty. While applying the putty to the drywall, I realized that I needed a mixing surface on which to knead the putty during this process. I created a working prototype of a mixing board that I used for my DIY project, and I must say that for me it worked like a charm. I was excited about the success of the prototype, and that further inspired me to create a revision #2, which boasted a few engineering changes based on lessons learned from the original design. Revision #2 was further optimized to create the final design herein. After completing my final prototype model and CAD, I decided to patent my design, and it was during my research of prior arts that I realized that this sort of device already existed. I was disappointed at first, but I did not let that deter me from pursuing my design dream, as I strongly believe that my design idea is revolutionary and contains features that are unique in many ways, which will allow it to far outperform the competition in the field.
