Here is an Arm Rest Table. As you can see in the first pic, it slides over the arm of the chair. My freind uses it for the mouse with his lap-top. He also uses it for a writeing table.
Made from S4S 4/4 Curly Maple. About 20 inches long. Screwed and guled with plugs to match. Finished with clear poly.
Ended up makeing 4 of these (3 from select pine, Cal got the purdy one) used by the rest of the family. Had to make each one to fit the chair it was going on since the arms of the chairs are all different widths.
Cut the outside leg top at about a 10deg angle. This helps it to pinch the arm and not move around. You can make these as large or small as you want depending on your needs. Watch the back edge towards the chair back. Had to inset this one to miss the back. (last pick, lower left corner)
Hope you all like.
Thank you for looking. Feel free to post all comments and suggestions.
