French country, look away. This is a project for those of us who love the unfinished. Who prefer exposed red brick. Who dig loft apartments where you can look up and see the air ducts. This is a laptop stand made from painted PVC pipe...
The whole thing is just an at-home assembly of some hardware-store-bought PVC pipe and joints, painted to match the metallic finish of the laptop. Easy peasy, right?
One commenter on Lifehacker
, where we spotted this project, suggests that you could make the stand stronger by "double-stuff"-ing the PVC pipe. using a little lubrication (dish soap does the trick) and a rubber mallet, you can slam and squeeze a 3/4-inch-wide length of PVC pipe into a 1-inch wide pipe. It provides a little reinforcement and reassurance that your precious machine won't take a tumble.
