If you have ever used a notebook computer you know what a juggling act it can be, not to mention the heat that comes out of the bottom of the laptop. Rather then continuing to burn my lap, here is my solution to I came up with … these are photo’s (sorry for the blurry pic’s) of the lap table I made.
I not only cut the tops of the legs at an 11 degree angle for comfortability but the 3/4” spacers between the legs are at an angle as well, so the piece would flow together. Originally I was going to staple the legs to the 1×2’s on the bottom of the top, but “3fingerpat” (also a member of this wonderful site) suggested that I cut a 1/2” dado into the top and bottom of the 1×2’s, again so the piece would flow. Note the 1/2” x 3/4” spacers were all hand made, I choose Red Oak because of the beautiful finish it has, I applied Helmsman’s Polyurathane Clear finish to complete the project
Hope you like it & thanks for looking …
