    Wink Quicky and Dirty project.

    Feeling almost like an Allen Levine today. I started and completed a project in under an hour.

    I'm going to call this a 'lap desk'. You see, I knew I had some work/work to do today, and I didn't feel like sitting at my normal desk, so thought it might be nice to watch a few episodes of Dr Who and get some work done at the same time.

    It's 1/2 apply ply from the borg, 12"x16". Just the right size to hold my laptop pc with room for a small mousepad and mouse on the right.

    I used a rounder over router bit on all edges, and sanded all the way up to 100 grit.

    See, I still can do projects from time to time!

    It's a beauty for sure!

    So Allen (and all)...I have given Brent one more pass this year. However the rule he has agreed to is that, for 2014, we have a list of all unfinished projects from prior years and he can't work on anything new until he gets them done. I'll let him slide by with these simple, one day ones...but I think we need a list and he'll need to figure out how to get them done.

    Besides the dining table/bench/chairs...does anyone have a pet peeve project you'd like to see finished (oh I'm in so much trouble)

    Outstanding. The innovative use of known materials and methods serves as an inspiration to us all. Hearken to my words oh Family Woodworking brethren, to bask in the shadow of one who stands at the forefront of the current state of what is humanly possible in the world of furniture design is a gift not many are privileged to experience. And to obtain such near-divine perfection within the short span of one lifetime is true greatness. That a mere table should deign to interfere on the thought processes that conspired to deliver this miracle is unthinkable. Banish all thoughts of tables and chairs to the far dark corners. Let kindle and spark, that next of ideas that, as impossible, inconceivable and unimaginable as it may be, might yet overshadow even the wonder, the glory and the magnitude that is . . . The Lap Desk.

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

    Well, not to over design this new master piece. but I think you need some Velcro straps attached to the bottom that will go around you legs and attach. Then it won't be slipping off you lap. Then it can also be used as protection if you ever act as home plate umpire at a neighborhood baseball game.

    You really did a great job matching up the grain on the top of it.
