Step 1: What I used
- A few scraps of wood I got free. I actually got a whole trunk-ful of free wood that was sitting on the curb after an estate auction.
- Gorilla Glue
- Some Clamps
- A children's travel lap desk (I purloined mine from my kids after it was sitting for 2 years unused. I am sure you could pick one up at a thrift store pretty cheap)
In this case, it will keep the laptop steady.
Step 2: The Front
I cut it to size, made sure it wouldnt interfere with my typing, catch on my hands, and that the laptop could close and open without being effected (if any of this occurred, I would have sanded it down, but luckily it was a perfect height already)
One cut, I dabbed gorilla glue all along the bottom, placed it on the lap desk in the center along the front, and clamped it down.
