Laptop Stands by Matt
With working remotely I was getting to spend more time in my shop (not complaining) and was motivated to make myself some laptop stands to raise my computers to align to the base of my external monitor. I also added a design feature to store my wireless keyboard to give me more working room when not typing.
My first one was made out of Curley Cherry and poplar. I painted the poplar a flat white and finished the cherry with three coats of Arm-R-Seal satin. I lined the feet with black felt as well and attached the top with z-fasteners.
I used the same concept for my MacBook, but made it out of hard maple with a bit of curl and some black walnut. I lined the feet with felt and attached the top with z-fasteners as well. I then finished the whole project with three coats of Arm-R-Seal satin.
I used the tiny dominos for the joinery to attach the stretchers to the feet. Seemed to be the easiest way to get it done.
These were very satisfying to make and it was even a bigger bonus that I use these every day and love how functional they are.
