How To Make Cheap Laptop Desks

Laptop desks can cost a stupid amount of money, but luckily for you they can be constructed with IKEA stuff, sandpaper, and a saw.

IKEA hacker has laptop desks or holders created from a sawed-off stool, a paper towel holder (weird), and a kitchen shelf. We like the stool one, personally. It costs $19. The one he was copying cost $150. Win.

    I’m actually quite happy with my “Table-Mate II”, bought off of eBay for $20.

    @tonkyhonk: That’s not the same thing. Those are stands for typists, stenographers, etc. You can use those lying down.
