My Daughter Likes to lay in Bed to Watch Movies on her Laptop.Out popped an idea for a table to put it on. Approx 11” x 20” x 8” High, Made with Recycled Pine Crating(look close & you may see the Staple Holes filled with Epoxy.

Why the Pair ? – Well Dad had to have one also !!!

Folds Flat for Easy Storage.

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

interesting idea. They look really good (i was going to say for second hand lumber, but they just really look good).

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.
