DIY Gaming LapDesk

I give you the Gaming LapDesk

It’s built from plywood, Some Yoga Blocks and an Anti Slip Mat from the $tore. I already had a bunch of sticky Velcro strips, so the investment in this was pretty cheap (Under $30 CAD).

I added a old hub I picked up at a local Thrift Ship for $2. I plug the keyboard and mouse into it. Then twist tie up the cables nice, and add a single longer cable to run to my TV center.

Could have gone wireless, but for cost and not having to deal with batteries I like the wired option.

I picked up the cheapest Logitech keyboard the LCS (Local Computer Shop) had in stock. It feels cheap, but not nearly as cheap as I expected. Will prob look to replace these in the future.

The Anti Slip Mat from the $tore was for inside drawers. It worked amazingly well. I used a ton of white glue to stick it down, put a board on top, and piled some paint cans on top for the night.

The finished thing actually feels pretty nice. I can see where I could improve a Model 2 version of this.. So maybe soon I will make an update.

I can’t take all the credit for this amazingly great creation of fun. I fist saw something close to this via DIY DAVE on YouTube. I ended up using the yoga block idea, but think I might try to make folding legs to store it away better on the next model.

Time to get back to some Borderlands 2. Been starting to play this in co-op with a buddy. Also been working on finishing off some single player fps games.
