Introduction: Simple Laptop Stand

Needed a cheap and effective laptop stand that would work for both of my laptops. Used as little material and tools as possible.

Step 1: Materials and Tools


  • 100x45x45 mm piece of wood
  • 2x rubber feet
  • 2x steel wood screw


  • saw
  • clamps
  • wood glue
  • screwdriver
  • sandpaper

Step 2: Cut Wood

Measure and cut to desired size. I cut the piece of wood diagonally to get two triangle shapes; you can see the marked lines in the picture.

Step 3: Glue Together and Sand

Glue the side legs together. Make sure to let it dry properly before sanding it down.

Step 4: Screw in Rubber Feet

Rubber feet are put on the top to provide more friction and keep the laptop in place.

Step 5: Finished

As a footnote, there is enough room to install a fan if you should desire more cooling for your laptop.
