My neck was sore from the constant use of phone, tablet and PC during the day.
I had to do something.
To enjoy and save my neck, I built a desktop support for my devices with recycled materials
- rolling shutter band
- base from old TV/Monitor
- pallet wood

Step 1: Cut and Assemble Main Structure
Cut a U-shaped wood piece for the main body and fortify low portion, this will be operational for:
- prop tablet
- bolt down together main body and TV base
Make a H-shaped sled, paying special attention to leave more room between parallel elements. More room is to facilitate the slide up and down the main body
Step 2: Dig Sockets
Dig sockets with a rasp.
Step 3: Back and Locking "teeth"
Reproduce a clip for clothes with two pieces of wood
The closure of one side should be at the level of the edge of the other side.
Hammer it 3 or 4 nails on the closure and cut their head: they will function as teeth to bite the tape secured along the side of the support
