Laptop Stand – The ‘Binbou’ Way!
Guided by Kodomut’s efforts in making a DIY laptop stand, I’ve decided to make one of my own!
First, you need cardboard. There are many types of cardboard around, so make sure you get the strong type. Like your laptop box…that’s pretty good cardboard there.
Second, download the template from greenUPGRADER and copy them unto the cardboard to cut out the parts you will need.
I adjusted the slope steeper so that I don’t end up looking like a praying mantis when typing on my laptop when it’s on the stand.
The next step will be, of course, to cut them out.🙂
If you have noticed, I cut out more than 2 pieces of No.2 as I have decided to ‘strengthen’ my stand by having 2 layers! And after assembling the pieces together (and gluing with UHU glue for me)…
Ta-dah! The final product.
OK, not so final…how come?
What’s a laptop stand, without a laptop?
(And yes, I own a Fujitsu instead of a Macbook)
Here’s the reason why: The cardboard kinda folds under the weight of the laptop at the thin areas.
I then ‘strengthen’ them using UHU glue again (🙂 )…don’t have the pictures for them though…
Another ‘problem’: A rather huge gap between the stand and the base of the laptop.
Reason for this is because the base itself isn’t straight!
But the laptop is still held steadily in place by the laptop, so no frets.🙂
And there you have it! (Or I have it)
And now nearly two weeks of my 3-weeks-break is almost over…what shall I do next? A more thorough clean-up of my room? Hmmm….
Gotta go check out the Natsu-Matsuri tomorrow! Gonna behave myself there…the other Singaporeans had better do the same…and DO NOT ADDRESS THE JAPANESE (prob there will be!) AS ‘JAPs’!! IT’S RUDE!!!
