Homemade laptop table for bed
This is a laptop table for the bed, I like to watch movies before falling asleep, but keeping a laptop on your knees is uncomfortable. That's why I built this laptop table. In addition, I use this table to put down the phone for a night battery charge. I also equiped this table with a night lamp that can be easily switched on and off with your foot. The shelf from the table is mounted on hinges, so I can easily change the angle of inclination.
