12 mm Plywood 15 mm wooden dowel (optional)
Shaper Origin 3 mm Up-Spiral Router Bit
Simple laptop stand with keyboard stowaway using either a 12mm plywood backplate for holding things together or 15mm wooden dowels. When you use the backplate version, first cut the backplate and after pocketing the mortise in the sides, test the fit of the tenons. Then - if necessary - do an inside cut with offset until it's a snug fit. I used a 0,1mm offset which worked fine (and I guess is the default when pocketing). The inside width of the backplate version is 22cm so A4 sheets of paper can be placed in between the sides. The dowel version does not have to be 12mm plywood. You can use any strength that your router bit supports. DANGER, WILL ROBINSON: When you use a wider bit than 3mm you have to edit the SVG and place the sides apart from each other to not damage one side while doing the outside cut on the other.
