Modern Laptop Stand

Watch full YouTube tutorial here

Make this wooden laptop stand that looks stylish and modern, this video will show you woodworking techniques including using a router table and applying a finish to complete this project.

To start with we design the template in sketchup and then use that to cut out the templates on the scroll saw, you can also use a coping saw or jigsaw for this process.

The template is then screwed to the blanks and cut out on the router table using a flush cut router bit and a Microjig Grr-Ripper for safety.

We then glue the pieces together three at a time, which is easier to align and then sand the inside of the pieces before final assembly and glue up.

After final glue up and we have sanded the piece to 1000gritt with the power sander we can start the woodworking finishing process.

I used Hard Burnishing oil for the finish, which gives a super smooth finish while still retaining that close to the wood feeling.

I apply 2 coats of burnishing oil 30 minutes apart and after the last coat before it dries I take some 400 grit sandpaper and rub the surface of the wood which forms a slurry of sawdust and oil that fills an pores in the wood, additional oil can be added to the sandpaper to boost the slurry and add lubrication, using the same process up to 1200 grit sandpaper to give a super smooth finish. After 24-48 hrs the laptop stand can be buffed using a lambs wool cloth.

Adaptive Cutting System

I really like the Adaptive Cutting System (ACS) and hope to buy it soon. My table saw really scares me as I have a bad knee that likes to buckle on me at inopportune times. I can just picture it happening at the table saw and tossing me into the saw…Continue
