I have my desk arranged in a certain way, with my home laptop sitting in one corner. My current job allows me the opportunity to occasionally work from home. Since my job usually consists of plenty of CAD work, I try to avoid working straight off of my laptop. I don't want to pay for a dock, and I find most laptop stands are reminiscent of cubicle life and not the home. This Instructable will allow you to stack multiple laptops for about $10.00 and an hour or two of your life. Presenting: Work/Play, the minimalist laptop stand.
Step 1: Materials
I wanted this stand to be built from off-the shelf material and require minimum woodwork.
Purchase a 3/4 x16 x 36 board at your local hardware store. I purchased side-glued paint-grade panel, not the strongest as you will see. The 16" width is perfect for most laptops. I had the associate cut the following lengths: 13", 13", 4", and 5.5" ( the remainder).
These dimensions are dependent on the size of your laptops.
I also purchased a pack of #8 x 1 1/4 flathead wood screws.
