A Sliding Mount For My Laptop

[IMG]

A short little video that solves a big problem of mine. I wanted to use my laptop with my MIDI piano, but finding a place for it where it was easily accessable yet out of the way of the piano keyboard required making a sliding table. Once that was done I realized it wanted to slide away from me so it was back to the drawing board.

It was actually a pretty quick project (my favorite kind!) and illustrates why it's important to always be building your tool kit.

Because you can't always just buy the things you really need!

Clicking on the image will bring you to the video which explains all of this so much better. And of course, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE so you can follow what's happening on Open Wood Shop & Old Montgomery's Farm!

YARD & GARDEN -- ( Redirects to OldMontgomerysFarm.com )

It's not all about mowing the lawn. There's plenty of wood working projects too! All Yard & Garden pages now redirects to OldMontgomerysFarm.com as a way of separating that type of woodworking from my other projects.

THE BOOKSHELF

It's hard to imagine being a wood worker without the aid of wood working books. From all over the world, from different cultures, spanning back hundreds of years, books are a message from the past to us today.

BOXES >>

Utilitarian, whimsical, expensive wood or shop scraps, boxes are just fun to make. Here is a (growing) collection of boxes I've made over the years.
