I have never eaten a meal in bed. But a laptop tray? That makes sense.

Looks great but they are for when you give the wife breakfast in bed.

I hope you include instructions in Portuguese so David will know how to use it. I made on of these for my wife years ago, but I used the lighter dowel. I had to put a nylon washer in to help keep the legs from falling out when not in use. Nice tray!

COOL & Simple tray…
I like the folding legs… it seems like most of what I have seen, the legs are fixed.

Nice project and your usual entertaining video. Did I miss the dimensions of the tray? (or is that a secret?).

The top is 20” x 12.5” (the golden ratio). It stands 9.5” at the top and 7.5” from the base to the ground.

Thanks, Steve. I should have known ‘the golden ratio’. I usually size stuff according to the size scrap I have around ( the frugal ratio).

I’d love to see what the bed tray looks like, but I need to get to bed if I want to be awake when hubby brings my breakfast to me in bed! (I’ve got dial-up and I’ve spent an hour and a half to download the first minute of your video and still haven’t seen the bed tray.) Oh, the joys of dial-up! ;-(
I’m curious how it compares to this one.

”I’m curious how it compares to this one.”

Here is a Still… The legs fold up into the Top…

I look forward to my Saturday-morning treat – the Steve video – and again was not disappointed.
Very functional design and clear instructions, particularly the point about dowel sizes – its almost counter-intuitive to make it tight !
One small design suggestion – would the tray benefit from semi-circular cut-outs in the ends to allow fingers underneath to lift the tray more easily, especially when loaded ?
Thanks again Steve.
BTW, yesterday I looked at your first LJ entry – the captured cube in a cube. Interesting hairstyle !

Another great project. This tray would work well on the sofa too. perhaps even the recliner. Well done Steve.
