Decided to make this for friend on Friday. Found some leftover bits of 1” thick poplar and a small square of plywood with 2 good sides. Knocked out the frame on Saturday, finished it on Sunday. Basically it’s made from scraps. I used simple pocket hole joinery for speed. One coat of non-wax shellac, a light, fine sanding, and a coat of spray lacquer.

I just found this projects during a search for monitor stands. I need to make something so my laptop will fit under the monitor. The problem is all connecting cables plug in on the sides of the laptop; none in back. The open concept should work for me.

Thanks for sharing.

You’re welcome, Mike. I made this 2 years ago, and I still have it, but not the computer.
