EPISODE 4

Join your host Chad Stanton in the I Can Do That shop to build a lap desk. Lap top computers have just about replaced most home computers, and with good reason. They’re powerful, a great size and portable. But they don’t always sit comfortably, say in bed or on the couch, and if you do find a good spot they’ll warm your lap quickly. Not good for you or the computer. This Laptop Lap Desk will put your computer at the proper angle and provide ventilation to keep things cool! Click here to download Episode 4’s extra materials.

Watch the previous episode here along with a preview of Episode 5, Country Shelf.
