Intro: DIY Bookend Laptop Stand
Take the two bookends and bend them slightly until you get the angle you want so the laptop will be the right height on your desk.
Tape them together using some duct tape.
Place your laptop on the stand.
Just to be safe, use the shoelace to keep the laptop from falling down.
Now you got a great looking laptop stand and you didn't have to spend $50 for a cheap plastic one.
