Thanks to wireless internet in my house, I can now sit in my comfy chair in the living room and read my email and check my favorite websites. The only problem is my laptop gets hot, too hot to sit on my lap for long. I recently bought a lap desk sort of thing made of I don't know what. It works and it cost $20.
But if I were made of money, I would have bought one of these, a Laptop Platform from Bedworks. It's made of bamboo. More details here.
If you can figure out how to make one, leave a message in the comments.
Being a woodworker is being part of something much bigger than just a guy in a shop. There's a world of woodworking design, art, and culture. I think that's as interesting as the working with wood itself.
