This is awesome! I want one!

If you have 5 more floppy discs, you could install a cup holder onto the side! :D

 Cool!
where can I get that many floppies at? how about cutting the slides out and arranging them for fans to pull heat out back or sides, Great indie

I'm old so I had a lot of floppies around. So did my parents.
Yes, scratchr contributor added a fan.
Great idea. Thanks! : )

nice idea :) mabye now i know what i can do with all my floppy disks
garagemonkeysan (author)  lisar3lla4 years ago
Thank you! : )
how much weight do you think that beast can hold? I want to make one for my tv lol I guess i could use like some sort of super awesome glue and reinforce all the triangles and especially the legs eh
By scrapping the legs, and making a single layer that sits on an already established flat surface, you could conceivably stand a TV on top--it would certainly enhance ventilation.

 Thanks for the comment. I don't think it would support the weight of a TV.
Thanks for the comment. The desk will hold around 10 lbs. Sorry, it probably won't hold a large TV. Adding stronger glue would not help but adding reinforcing triangles would. The trade-off would be a bulkier piece. Good luck! : )

Simple but a really good use of spare (outdated?) hardware. Plus is exactly what the slideshow format is right for. Excellent!
