Did you know that it is very easy to make a laptop stand from a PVC tube? The lengths of the pieces of tube that you need depend on the size of your laptop and the desired height. First, saw the tubes into pieces of the size you want. You can then paint the tube or cover it with coloured tape. In the example shown, the corners have been given a different colour. Finally, all that remains to do is to connect up the parts in the right order. If you are not sure that it is strong enough, you can also use glue.
