Time to combine may portable little laptop with the stability of a tripod, time for a laptop tripod!
Whether you're in the field writing a report or stuck in an office looking for a place to set down your computer, a laptop tripod should have you covered. Depending on the type of tripod you have there is a maximum weight and size limit your laptop will be able to hold, so remix the dimensions and ideas here to make your own.
Enough talk, let's make something!
Step 1: Tools + materials
Step 2: Laptop deck
Start by measuring out your laptop dimensions, then add another 50mm (2") to each side as a buffer edging that will be installed later. The dimensions for my laptop were 260mmx184mm (10.25"x7.25"), plus the buffer gives final dimensions of 310mmx234mm (12.25"x9.25").
Mark out dimensions on plywood, then cut out. Lightly sand edges to remove burrs.
