In an effort to make a computer desk so that I could use my computer while in my recliner I came up with this idea. It is a 1/2” birch plywood base a 3” poplar column and a recycled bamboo flooring top. I used a 3” lazy susie bearing so the top can be rotated out of the way when not in use.
It worked out okay but I have to find a different bearing to allow me to rotate the top. The 3” bearing has to much slop in it. I am thinking about using a bar stool bearing on my upgrade but need to see if it is more stable. Does anyone have any other ideas? Also the base will be modified to a square base because the triangle cause a little wobble.
Thanks for looking and maybe one of you may wants to be a lazy man like me.

Now that I am retired and have a recliner, I will attempt a project like this.
I will use it for a laptop computer and a music stand for my guitar.
Nice job Albe and thanks for the ideas for the changes.

Nice, I’ve been thinking for awhile about making something like this… maybe now I’ll be motivated to do so.

I think a lazy susan bearing would work well.
