DIY: PVC Laptop Stand
For some time now I have had the discomfort of working on my laptop on my desk and having all the cable clutter around. I’ve tried to solve that problem with a better cable organization, but still there was some clutter. Also, having attached a mouse, webcam and all kind of different peripherals to that laptop, it’s kind of annoying each you use your laptop in the office or somewhere else and get back home and have to attach everything back on. So I really needed a solution for this.
I looked on various e-shops for a „laptop stand“ so that I can just like some model, order it and make it an „end-of-story“ situation. However, in Bulgaria no shop offers such stands (or at least for a price less than 200 leva). I looked on Amazon also. I particularly like the iLap model. Its price was quite reasonable for the trendy design it has, but the delivery is a killer. The cost of the delivery was as much as the product itself.
Finally I got here – my all-time favorite DIY website Instructables. Following this, I made my own laptop stand. Here it is:
The bare stand. Just note the usb hub at the bottom left corner of the stand. Very useful the cable organzation – just plug everything in there and then to the laptop.
Here it is in operation mode ;)
So the things you need to built it – well just a couple of PVC tubes, some tee and some elbow joints, a little bit of silicon glue, some cushioning (in the form of tube insulation) and here you go! :)
