So I have went to the lumber yard and picked up a couple of shorts. Now I have decided that I have a couple things I want to make. I am going to make 2 laptop lap trays and a box for myself. I have had my shop for a year, three days ago. That is when we bought our house and I “claimed” the garage. :-) . Those with wives know what I mean, although my wife is extremely supportive in my pursuit of a functioning shop.
So today I am going up to the local library with my youngest daughter. They have story time for pre-schoolers and i plan to use that time to search for some inspiration. I also plan to search the internet for a design I like. I need to find the right angle for a laptop to sit and things like that. What ever style I use I want it to double between a laptop tray I can sit in my lap on the couch or bed or also sit on my desk and have my laptop at the right angle.
I see two of them, one for my wife and one for myself. I plan to use the same design for both just opposite woods. Where one is walnut the other is maple and so on.
As for the box, I have looked at many on here and there are some beauties. I think I will just let it flow. I will probably do a couple of sketches just to get a feel for it and then just let it flow.
I plan to post pictures of my progress. I think I do that on this blog and then post a album of the finished works in my gallery. I am new to this type of community so please be patient as I learn the proper etiquette. Also if anyone knows about laptop desks or trays any advice would be great. Thanks…..
