I never did get my wife an engagement ring when I should have six years ago now. I finally picked up a diamond for her. In order to make it a surprise and get an excuse for “what did you do all day on your week off”, I spent half a week building her a laptop stand.

The top is reclaims stage floor, while the tray is just something laying around. I added some oak strips for anchoring for the hinges. I bought the hinges. The blue cloth is a place mat folded over and held in place with staples. The hollow was filled with rice. It took a few days to complete, but I worked slow and spent that time shopping for a ring.

The block set I made for my son’s over here: www.woodshopcowboy.com

-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.
