I always use my laptop in bed.
Using the laptop in bed is very difficult without the appropriate table. Given that I'm living in iran and global markets are not available. Table if there is such a price is too expensive, I decided to make it myself.
Hopefully, the description is understandable given that they do not speak good English.

Step 1: Ingredients

How did you get the joints to hold the laptop? I made one using the same design except with all wood. However, the wingnut and screw are not strong enough at all.

I made another one in pine wood and mdf a year ago inspired in the same concept. Simpler than these and, obviously, cheaper (about $8)
