Laptop stand to keep your laptop cool. Cheap and easy. Make one for you and for three friends.
Step 1: Materials:
Closetmaid 4' wire shelf and pack of Closetmaid endcaps (pack has 24 endcaps, mine had 27)
Step 2: Cut the Shelf
I bought my shelf at Home Depot and they cut it for me. I had them cut it into 4 pieces, each one foot in length. The person who cut my shelf told me that bolt cutters would cut through the shelf, too. The utensil she used was I would describe as a hydraulic bolt cutter.
Step 3: Finish the Stand
Put the end caps on each end of the shelf. That's what the grey thingys are.
Step 4: Put Laptop on Stand
Set the shelf so the overhang edge is towards the hinge on the laptop. Set laptop onto the shelf. You're done. The cost to make 4 of these is $7.50.
