What a nice bit of recycling DaddyZ. How did you make rounded ends on the dowels that stop the laptop sliding off?

Those are great. I really like the buttons you used rather than the typical lip.

I, too, really like your use of screw cap plugs. Combined with the roundover edges, it gives them a really sleek look. Your method for adjustment of the top is clever, too.

I made something similar for my brother before he died, which could be used as a desk or for laptop computer, meals, etc.
