Introduction: Recliner Laptop Table

Picture of Recliner Laptop Table

I wanted to make a easy laptop table for my recliner. after searching the internet for a idea i had no success . so i turned to my garage to find a inexpensive and easy way to make it turn. and what i came up with was taking a wheel like the one on a dolly, and unbolting the 4 bolts that hold the 2 pieces together. and you have a bolt on bearing swivel for the table.

Step 1:
