Hi, and welcome to my instructables about a simple laptop stand I made from scrap plywood. I do a lot of work on my laptop and after hours of drawing or typing I find my neck really starts to ache due to my bad posture. Rather than using a pile of books or buying a stand I decided to design and make one.
I wanted to make something that was cheap/free easy to transport and looks good. I've also not got a great deal of time at the moment because uni work is building up so the design also had to be easy and quick to realise.
At the moment I am very privileged to have access to an amazing workshop at uni. As such I use tools that get the job done as quickly and easily as possible. However, you could make this project with more basic tools i.e. a jigsaw rather than a bandsaw; sand paper and rasps rather than belt sander etc.
