Thread: Simple project

    Simple project

    I constantly use my laptop on different surfaces and some arent great for a laptop so I plan on making something i can set my laptop on so it can get good airflow.

    Basically all I'm doing is making a box with some handles and a few holes(one for a fan or two)
    It's a real simple project so it should be done mostly by tomorrow, I wont be adding handles till im sure this will work how I want it.

    Simple project

    I forgot to get sandpaper, but this project is almost done all i need to do is close any gaps in the box with some wood filler sand it down, paint it(or stain it) add the fan, mount the battery box and add a switch

    now if you ever plan on making your own I suggest using plexiglass cause you can make it look nice with led's and all that other cool stuff...but I used plywood cause I have tons of it and I dont have to worry about it too much if it drops.

    (i'll take pics when i can)

    I finaly got pictures, the quality is crap, but you can see what it is

    I plan of setting the fan in a bit more when i have the time.
    I need to redo the paint though, for some reason the primer didnt work like it should have
    Yes the fan is ran off a 9v, i plan on changing this when i get a new switch (the old one broke somehow)

    Oh and yes there is a reason that "lip" is ther on the right side of my project, its for when i transport my laptop i can hold it down so it wont fall off

    One last keeps my laptop cool! sure i could have baught a premade one but this was free, lol

    Nice idea. Refine and maybe you got something that you could sell as an idea to a large company.
