Knex Laptop Stand

Greetings Instructables Community!

This is my first time submitting an Instructable, and hopefully it will not be the last. I am presenting here a laptop stand that I have been using for about a year and a half now. My problem is an older battery which tends to over heat and shut the whole bloody thing down. With this stand, cool air flows underneath the battery and now I have no problem running the gadget all day.

On a personal note, I also like the angle of the keyboard now. It is a bit easier on the wrists for me to type.

The design is pretty self explanatory. I hope that the attached pictures will be enough to go by, as I pretty much improvised this myself. If there are any questions I will try my best to answer them.

Thanks very much in advance for your feedback, and I hope you will find this helpful.

    thats rely cool! i have made some laptop stands before, but they dont tilt to one end, this is cool! :D


    Wow!, That thing looks solid as all get out. Very cool. If I ever do a 2.0 version, then I think I will try more supports. Have to get more Knex first though, running low:)
