If you are a mac user, you should know how dangerous to use the mac on the bed. Last month I damaged the logicboard because of the over heat. It took my whole day to fix it. Then I decided to built a stand to prevent further damages. I wanted to make it in cheapest, and easiest way. that's why I chose a wooden hanger.
Step 1: Material and Equipments
A wooden hanger.
Sandpaper or sponge
These materials are what I used to make my laptop stand. For sure you might need different materials for different hanger.
Step 2: Taking Off Metal Parts, Marking, Cutting.
I was lucky that my hanger has a 8mm diameter stick to hang trousers. I used that part to hold the legs together. Cut the hanger in the middle for your stand's legs equally and cut the stick shorter then your laptops' width.
Step 3: Smooth the Surface, Drill and Paste
After you cut the legs, you will need a sandpaper or sponge to make the surface smoother. I drilled the legs in the middle and pasted the stick with some glue. If you want your design more durable, you should add one more stick as well. The hole in the last 4th,5th photo is optional. I put rubber bumpers to prevent laptop slide.
