Instructables

Laptop STAND PVC table

I got this IDEA from other INSTRUCTABLES and applied it for a PVC laptop table stand that I modified for use of how we (my family) mostly use the laptop in a horizontal position.
We know its bad for you body, posture and worse for the laptop because of overheating but we always end up with our legs propped up with an over heated computer on them.
Also this stand is small and versitial depending on where you want to use it.

Step 1: MATERIALS

Picture of MATERIALS
10 FEET 1/2 INCH PVC TUBE highest grade you can find it wont bend
four 90 degree corners, two 45 degree corners, 5 tees two end covers
two pieces of rope (not shown here) I spent all of 5.00 dls to make two
seperate tables. PAINT not inclued and optional

Step 2: CUT PVC pieces as shown

Picture of CUT PVC pieces as shown
I have cut and measured my version of this table to my own use
This fits our 13 to 17 inch laptops measurements can be modified to fit you laptop and body size

please note that you should be able to fit under the table as in the picture of the boy, if you need it wider or higher these mesurements wont be of use.

Step 3: Assemble as shown

Do not use glue yet

Step 6: ALL PIECES IN PLACE

Picture of ALL PIECES IN PLACE
If all pieces are in place you should be able to see a version simular to this

Step 8: Drill HOLES TO FIX POSITIONS

place the table in the positions you want and drill the hole acording
I personally used a hot nail to make the holes.

Step 11: SHORT LEGS EASIER TO STORE

JUST A QUICK NOTE
The TEE I have left on top is optional you may use one sigle pipe there instead I want it there so I can pull the cords thru
simple, elegant and very practical. definitely a 5!
I be dizzy! But what a great instructable, very versatile, and cheap like me... and apparently you. Is the still stable when used with the larger laptop, or would maybe a 3/4" pipe be better ?

 YES its very stable, I made several for 15 inch laptops and smaller, with the 15 inch I use the longest legs for support and if all glued well its very stable even with laptop fan included, I bought PVC for hot water which is 4 times more resistant than cold water PVC, and  because thick PVC is very bulky. And best of all it fits under my bed when not in use.
