A little knock down laptop desk .
Very simple to make with simple tools that the kids can use under my supervision .
Made from a laminate flooring sheet and a bit of plywood .
Made custom size as per instructions from my grandson and I like the way he designed the top with the armrest extension . We kept the weight down by cutting openings in the supports which are locked in place with two little cam levers .
He will use this sitting on the floor and also when sitting on his bed or any place where he may use his laptop .

Nice job guys! I really like the table top armrest idea your grandson designed. I would need mine on the left side!

Grandfather has got it figured out. LOL! Looks like a happy kid with electronic stuff on top of a woodworking project!

He might be interested in designing those little derby racers with you?

I like it Klaus. Nice simple design that can be used anywhere. I may make one or two for the upcomming camping trip.

Nice design and execution, Klaus and grandson! I like the weight reducing cut outs. Is there a way of securing the pieces together when stored? Thanks for sharing.

That is, pardon the expression, NEAT! Follows the KISS principle to a tee and looks good too.
