Why should a laptop stand or a beverage/food tray not be entitled to the same decorative efforts as the other treasures we have in our households? Well, I say bosh to that, and set out to show that a tabletop stand can be visually stimulating in addition to serving its more utilitarian purposes. The material used is Australian Poplar and the stain can be chosen to suit your individual preferences. There isn't a laptop that I know of that doesn't fit on this stand, and the construction of the piece allows for natural cooling ventilation. Of course this stand is not limited to laptops, but its uses are limited only to your imaginations. I have used it as a beverage tray, food tray and a table accent. The construction allows for some bend and flexibility and so it's not subject to cracks and will show a little give for heavier, more rigid objects should you choose to place them on this piece.
