Hi y’all I am looking for plans for a portable laptop desk, I do lots of travelling and internet stuff at home too. I don’t have room in my house for an office or desk so I tend to use my laptop on the couch or in my chair. i am trying to find plans to build a simple desk so my laptop can breathe and my legs don’t get so darn hot. Thanks in advance for your ideas!
