My wife likes to use her lap top computer while she’s in her recliner. But, quite often she keeps readjusting the computer on her legs because it gets uncomfortable after a few minutes. So, I thought I would make her this collapsible lap top desk for her lap top. It’s made of 3/4” Birch Plywood with 1/4” pine banding around the edges. the overall dimensions are 18” x 12” x 8” high. I designed a 1” drop from back to front and put a “lip” on the front edge to keep the computer from sliding off. When I put it together, the side legs would wobble a little so I installed a collapsible support for the legs for security. It seems to work well and the support folds out of the way when you fold in the legs. So far she seems to like it. I brought it in from the shop unfinished so she could try it out and now I can’t get it back to finish it. I guess that means she’s happy with it.
