MadeByCliff: Ergonomic folding laptop stand

James Clifford will be running this workshop on creating your own folding laptop stand.

While are all working from home these days, our ergonomic work environment has been left behind. I have created a laptop stand which raises the laptop to the correct height and also folds away when you’re not using it. It also becomes a case for your keyboard, mouse and other peripherals when folded.

Materials needed for this workshop

It is a simple plywood design with a few small 1 inch hinges. It can be made with a saw, chisel and wood glue.
