Truckers Steering Wheel Desk

WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT USE THIS WHILE DRIVING. FOR USE WHILE PARKING ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


OK this is my first Instructable, so please me nice. When sitting at a truck stop waiting for a load it is easier to use the laptop while sitting at the steering wheel. Problem is my laptop is a little too narrow to stay sitting on the steering wheel. So after thinking of ways to fix this problem. I was walking around a Hobby Lobby and saw the painting easels and inspiration struck.

Cut off the little angled nub on the end of the removed leg. File off the stray ends from cutting. I filled down the leg to be able to fit into the slot on the folding arm that the canvas frame sits in. Then cut the leg in half and filed the strays on the cut.
