This instructable was designed by Tanaka Satoshi, Makedo's master maker in Japan.

Step 1: Find

Source a cardboard box that is wide enough to sit your laptop on.

Step 2: Score/cut

Begin by placing the box on its side. Use the point end of the Makedo safe-saw and score from one corner of the box to the opposite corner.
Cut a hook shape just before the bottom corner to prevent your laptop from slipping.

Step 3: Fold

Fold inwards along the creased line.
Turn the box over and repeat on the other side.

Step 4: Fold

Fold the top flap to follow the slope of the
hook shape. Carefully place your laptop on the angled surface to ensure that it rests firmly without slipping off.

Step 5: Punch

Use the Makedo safe-saw and punch four holes through the flaps of the cardboard.

Step 6: Connect

Connect using Makedo pins and clips shown in the image.

Step 7: Build

To create a cable tidy slot, simply attach an extra piece of cardboard to the side of the stand and use the Makedo pin and clip to hold it in to place.

Step 8: Share
