Need to use your laptop in your car? Don’t purchase a pricey laptop stand for the passenger seat or shell out for a dashboard mount. With some creative DIY-action you can turn your cup holder into a laptop stand.
Mike Davis needed a way to use his laptop in his truck and have a nice stationary platform to put it on. Unfortunately commercial models ran upwards of $US300. After scoping out the cab of his truck and doing some brainstorming he realised he could build his own stand and use the centre console cup holder as a base.
With $US30 worth of parts—mostly pvc pipes, fittings, and a sheet of plywood—and a single afternoon of work he had a laptop stand for his truck that holds his laptop so well it doesn’t budge even when swinging the truck around corners.
