How to Make a Laptop Stand Out of a Soda Can

I was looking at other instructables for laptop stands, and i didn't have the materials. so what did i do? i made my own! This instructable will show you how to make a laptop stand from only one very easy material to come by: soda cans. this method is super easy, cheap, and effective, and i'm sure you have two soda cans laying around the house!

Step 1: Obtain 2 Cans

Look in your recycling, on your table, or in your car cupholders for a used, empty soda can. it doesn't matter what size. (or go to your fridge and drink a soda. then you can use the can.) or, if you only drink canned beer, use one of those. :)

Step 2: Draw the Line on the Can

Take a sharpie. draw a line around the can at the bottom sloping downwards. basically, if the can was a carrot, think of slicing it in half at an angle. remember to draw it all the way around the can.

Step 3: Cut the Can

Take a knife (i used a pocketknife) and cut along the line you drew. you can also use scissors or a sharp steak knife or any sharp knife...

Step 4: Enjoy Your Easy, Cheap Laptop Stand!

You're finished! put them under your laptop. if you're lazy and didn't make two, just put one in the middle of you're laptop. don't worry, they're pretty sturdy, and extremely portable! :D
