Introduction: Put It on Risers!

Picture of Put It on Risers!

I am sure this will be in the running for the worst instructable, ever. But I like the simplicity. I'm not even sure what this is, but the term "riser" comes to mind. "Tray" might be a better word.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

1. flat, rigid object. I am partial to acrylic
2. silicone rubber feet. I purchased mine at Mouser, I think.

Step 2: Construction

Picture of Construction

1. pull plastic feet off from backing
2. stick onto your flat rigid object

Step 3: Use

Picture of Use

Take a bunch of stuff.

Step 4: Et Voila!

Put it on risers.

Now you can move groups of items around, without disturbing the arrangement. You can spill coke on your desk, and these items will be spared. You can put one on your sink for your shaving cream, so it doesn't leave rust rings. Or you can post hateful comments and death threats for this 2 minutes of your life you will never get back. :)

Did you know that the Secret Service used to write memos with a fountain pen on a single sheet of glass? If the glass is on risers you can slip other papers underneath and still read them. Don't knock risers!
Your rubber feet from Mouser are meant for metal boxes holding electronics. Screws through the base of the box hold the parts inside, the rubber feet lift the screws clear of the table .....

This is an evidence of the intelligence that lies behind the simplest things. IT'S COOL! I am very, but very lawless. This gives me a great idea for when I make four or five tasks at the same time. THANKS.

I'm still trying to classify this. Perhaps it's really just a big coaster? I'm thinking if you stuck an LED in it so that it glows, you could call it an eCoaster, short for Enormous Coaster. :)

I like it and it's stylish too.

That's actually a really good idea and makes PERFECT sense. It's practical yet simple :-)

Thinking about it again, it actually is a good idea. :-) Maybe you can make it like a crate-like kind of thing, and use it for a laptop! Then you can add fans at the bottom and stuff, and it could be a cheap laptop cooler!

This doesn't make any sense, but it looks cool, haha, like all the parts and stuff.
