Build An IKEA Laptop Stand From Handles And Brackets

IKEA has a wealth of gear you can convert into a laptop stand — we've featured CD rack, dish drainer and bookend versions in the past. But you can also get a pretty nifty result with handles and brackets.

At IKEA Hacker, Oscar details how he combined the $10 Lansa handle and $3 Ekby Valter brackets for a custom stand for his Thinkpad to make it easier to use with an external monitor. Not only does it handle both that model and a smaller netbook, it also serves as a cookbook stand. Gotta love multi-purpose design.
