Make A Laptop Table

A laptop table brings convenience for those who like to browse the Internet in bed.

Laptop tables enable you to work easily and comfortably on your computer in bed or on a couch. The idea is for the table to sit over your lap, while your computer sits on the table. There also is enough room on the sides of the table for a pad of paper and a cup of coffee. The design of these types of tables is simple. The design also doesn't require much materials or time to build. A simple table only requires a few pine boards and a few minutes to build. Does this Spark an idea?


1. Position the 22-inch board so it is standing on one of its 22-inch edges. Position a 10-inch board perpendicularly against one of the ends of the 22-inch board. The 12-inch end of the 10-inch board should be flush with the 12-by-22-inch surface of the 22-inch board. Screw through the 10-inch board and into the end of the 22-inch board using two screws. Space the screws 6 inches apart so they are 3 inches away from each side.

2. Screw the last 10-inch board to the opposite side of the 22-inch board in the same manner. Both 10-inch boards should be aligned. These 10-inch boards are the legs to your laptop table. The 22-inch board is the table surface.

3. Screw a 24-inch board to both sides of the 22-inch board and to both sides of the 10-inch boards. The 1-by-24-inch edges should be flush with the table surface, and the ends should be flush with the sides of the legs. These two boards will provide support to the table legs. Use eight screws for this task.

4. Sand the laptop table using your medium, and then fine grade sand paper. Wipe it down with a tack cloth and apply your wood stain.
