Step 1: Materials and Tools
-a cardboard or wood plank the size of the laptop
-a paper towel cylinder or a large dowel (around 1")
-a "1/4 dowel or any other thin, wooden material
To assemble the stand, you will also need:
-a glue gun
-scissors and/or a table saw to cut the wood plank or cardboard
After you gathered all the materials required, it is time to glue down the materials.
First, glue the smaller rod to one side of the base. Then, measure the distance with your laptop to where the back rod has to go. Make sure to put it in a place where it will be stable.
Put extra hot glue on both sides of each rod to make sure it is secured.
And you are done.
P.S. If you are going to use the laptop with the stand on your lap or you are going to take it places, I suggest you go with the wood as the base as it will not bent as the cardboard might. And also, since now there is space under the laptop, if you still think that your laptop will over heat, you might want to attach some fans underneath it.
