Because of my bad back, I have hard time sitting on chair.
Made a small table which is going to be used exclusively for sofa.
Table top and legs are sculptured. I didn’t use template so the table is not symmetrical.
Top is about 28” high, so it’s best if used while sitting on sofa.
I remember this type of desing is somewhere, but I modified it for sofa use.
Especially the top is about 2 degrees downward for easier use of mouse.
Cherry top and maple legs.
I’m thinking of adding an option like drawer or pencil holder.

I used float tenon & mortise. It needs strength, so had to make it strong.
Made two holes on each side and inserted two tenons.
Thanks you for looking.

I did it in simple way, using one ‘8’ type hardware and two screws through arms.
Thank you for looking.

Very nice. I may have to borrow this design and make one like it for my son. He lives in front of his laptop 24-7.
Do you mind?

This table is fantastic and beautiful, better than something plainly generic! Simply route a shallow groove to hold a pencil or pen, or make it wide enough to hold both if you like.

You’re thinking of same thing with mine.
I’m thinking of routing groove inside area, that is
creating a hill around edge or install pencil holder.
Thank you for the idea.
