LapMesa (Laptop Bed Support)

A miniature desk best for those who prefer laying back to sitting upright with a table. This laptop bed support is minimalist and keeps to the essentials, providing comfort with a simple design that won't bother users with extra features. Complete with a ventilation cutout to provide airflow, a leg-locking mechanism to prevent collapse, and a shiny umber exterior, it is perfect for any bed setting.

Step 1: Product Design for CNC Woodcutting Machine

The product was designed using VCarve, a CNC routing software.

The height of the legs of the table is dependent on the user and the length of the tabletop is dependent on how big the laptop is, so modify as you please.

Step 2: CNC Cutting

After designing using VCarve, save the file and set the Post Processor to G Code(mm)(*.tap). Save the file in a hard drive and connect the hard drive to the CNC Wood Cutting Machine. Set the machine, and wait until it fully cuts all the pieces on the plywood.

Step 3: Polishing

Polish the rough wood by sanding. After sanding, connect the three main pieces together with a two 1-inch door hinges for its foldable feature. Once connected, apply sand sealer to fill up small gaps and holes that are left from sanding. Let the sealer dry for at least 4 hours.

Step 4: Painting

Apply a paint of your preference for more aesthetic. (I applied a Warm Brown glossy enamel paint for mine).

Step 5: Adding of Stability

Finally, to make the table more stable, add a hook and loop on the corners. That's it!
