The best glass boards for writing and drawing

Whiteboards, a modern solution to the age-old problem of chalk dust, are available in many different materials, including porcelain, painted steel, and melamine. If that wasn’t enough, they are now also available in glass. Sleek and polished, glass whiteboards look great in offices and classrooms, and because glass is a smooth, non-porous material, dry-erase markers won’t stain its surface.
