Last year my neighbor asked if I could make a old fashioned bed tray with a tilting top for his wife as she does a lot of legal transcribing at home with her laptop on her lap and it gets a little warm. This is what I came up with, it’s based on plans from Woodsmith Magazine circa 1990. The dark one went to the neighbor and the other one was given to my daughter for her to do homework on.
The tray has 6 tilting angle detents so you can adjust it to your liking depending on what your doing. The little side trays are stored under the top with velcro when not in use. They are made out of curly maple and the tray is veneered mahogany on the dark one and a veneer that was given to me that I can’t for the life of me remember what it is, so I’m hoping that Rustic or Tearen can help me out with the name, as that’s who I got it from. They measure approx 33” wide, 16” deep, 7” tall.
