I used to work with my laptop in my car so I make a table to put my laptop on.

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

it not much...

- Plywood 50x40cm (you can adjust as you like)
- Wooden stick 50cm
- 2 Plastic string, 70cm each
- 2 zip tie


- Drill

Step 2: Make a Hole

Use your drill to make a hole on each corner of the plywood and the end of wooden stick.

Step 3: Make a Knot

make a knot on 1/3 part of each plastic string

Step 4: Assemble the Table

Assemble all the part as you can see in the picture then make a knot on each end of plastic string.

Step 5: Put It in Your Car

Put it on the back of drivers chair or passengers chair. Tie up to the head rest column.

To adjust you table position, simply slide the knot on each corner.

Not very practical for me at the moment as my dad drives a ford transit camper-van. But if he does get a original mini like he said im going to make one out of acrylic with a small fan to disperse heat from my dell laptop (they get hot very quickly)


Wish I have ford transit campervan, so I don't have to improvise making this table... hehehe...
Thats a great idea putting fan on it, I also thinking to put DC to AC invertor and multiplugs, but I just make it plain and simple couse some times I use it for writing work or put some food on it... :-p
I think we can just put cooling pad between the laptop and table.... but we have to pick colling pad that have non-slippery rubber....
By the way, have great time to inovate and improvise...


hm if i get acces to the laser cutter at my school i can cut one out that has a box under with a dc to ac inverter with plugs and the fans go to that and get run from car cigarette lighter hmm good idea !


Yup... U c what I mean... sorry for misstype 'inverter'...  may be it can be your science project... goodluck...

Whew! I was almost expecting one of these!  Very practical.

Which one is "very practical"?

I've seen that table at ACE hardware... but its too small for my 15,4inches laptop and I have to wrap up my laptop before I drive. With the table on the passenger side, I don't have to wrap it up at all, just leave it that way or simply put on sleep mode an close the monitor down. Then when I've parked the car, I can continue my work in just a second.

By the way, it cost me none... cause I've already got it all lying around. :-P
beside, with $18, I can buy food for 2 weeks....
