SWMBO likes her computer raised above the table a little bit with the keyboard tilted so her wrists aren’t bent so much. Hopefully this thing will be better than setting the computer on a big fat book like she’s been doing.

Thanks, guys, for the kind words.

Ivan: I think I agree about the screw heads. Maybe we can call them “inlaid metal accents” instead. Just this once.

Hi Rmac, Do you have the measurement as I would like to try and make one.

You can download a template for the sides of the stand here:

If you print it out using the “Actual Size” option in Acrobat Reader, you should be good to go. As a sanity check, you can check the dimension given on the template against your printed copy.

On my stand, the three dowels between the two sides are 6-1/2” long.
