About this Product
As shown, this laptop desk measures 26-30" wide x about 8" deep in this listing. For larger sizes, please request a custom quote or see my other listings. This is long enough to have it rest on the arms of most standard recliners rather than on your lap. Made of your choice of wood. Makes a great gift for back to school student or teacher, allowing them to use their ipad or laptop in a comfy chair rather than at their desk. It can even double as a bath caddy, though I don't recommend non-waterproof electronics around the bathtub!
All trays include round over edging (1/4 rounded on all sides making the grip comfortable with no sharp edges).
- Wood options include pine, poplar, cherry, oak, and reclaimed mahogany
- 3 coats of quality urethane to seal to protect the wood - Your choice of Matte, Satin, or Gloss. Let me know in the checkout notes.
Available options are $5 each. Please let me know in the check out notes which options you want. If you want more options than are available or need a different size, please contact me for a custom listing. Upon receiving your order, I'll create a mockup to show you how your options will look on the board and give you an opportunity to change things to your liking.
Commonly Requested Options ($5 each):
- Wine glass slot
- Shot glass depression
- Coffee mug depression
- Tablet / Ipad Slot (.5" x 11")
- Cell phone depression
- Pen or pencil groove
- Engraved phrase or name carved into the wood
- Votive Candle Holders (up to 3- includes candles 1.5" diameter ea)
- Laptop vent holes (go thru the board)
- Laptop vent ridges (deeply carved to allow extra airflow, but don't go through the board)
- Hole cut out on end for hanging (can be rectangular or circular)
- Stain (only available for pine, the other woods are so beautiful just left natural)
- Non-slip Grips glued to underside not needed for recliner, but helpful if on tub
- 1/2" wood blocks glued to underside to prevent slipping off of tub ledge
- Screwed-on Riser legs up to 4" for 2 Options
- Book Rest for 2 Options
Please note that while you may use this around the tub, the polyurethane coating is not sufficient to protect against water damage from a shower. Wood should be dried after each use and re-coating may be necessary. I use Rustoleum polyurethane clear spray suitable for indoor or outdoor use. I recommend my Corian trays for a waterproof option.
Keep in mind these are hand-made and wood is a natural product with variations, so no two laptop desks will be identical. Based on availability of stock, the wood may be edge glued to achieve the 7.5-8" width.
Meet the Maker
Welcome to my one woman shop!
My name is Jennifer. I am an Army veteran, mom to an Army reservist/social worker, wife, and Christian. I started my interest in woodworking in middle school, back when shop classes were mandatory. Then, blessed with working for a sign maker in high school and gifted a router one distant Christmas, I made crafting my full-time job in 2015. I enjoy creating products you'll enjoy receiving and giving. If you'd like to customize anything you see in my shop to make it yours alone, just let me know. I love working with you to make unique pieces. If you are not quite ready to buy, please favorite my shop so you can find me easily when you are ready. Thanks for looking!
I also operate EnkoreSign.net, PACKAwards.net and MilitaryPatriot.net on Etsy so be sure to check them out, too... but just to see what I can do. If you want something you see there and not on this platform, hosted by goimagine, please contact me so I can recreate the listing here, that way all profits from fees will go to children in need.
As a former foster parent and a parent of a daughter who chose to go into social work to help keep children from having to go into foster care, I am passionate about the goimagine cause and look forward to the day I have all my inventory available here.
Please review before purchasing!
The materials I use are reclaimed, refurbished, or at least rebought and may be one of a kind. To maximize usage, sizing may vary in all dimensions plus or minus about 10%. For custom signs, you'll be sent a mock up based on your custom text along with approximate dimensions planned for your project. Let us know at the time of your order if exact specific sizing is required.
Custom and personalized orders
The max number of characters for personalization may be limited based on the size of the item. If you need more, please contact me for a customized quote. The font(s) shown in the first photo is generally standard for that sign. If you'd like another font, just let me know. I will send a mockup of your personalized sign within 2-3 business days for your approval before beginning work so be sure to check your email.
Some items include indoor/outdoor urethane, some include just inside urethane, and some are left unfinished. Cedar and redwood weathers nicely outside whether finished or not, but other wood types should be sealed for protection and that protection should be renewed by the customer regularly to ensure continued protection. Corian is a man-made acrylic that is weather proof and uv resistant, however the paint (though suitable for outdoor use) will need touch ups if used outside just as house paint would.
Packaging and protective materials are recycled whenever available, but still clean and sturdy, this is to save you money as well as help keep perfectly usable material out of the landfill.
I get to work on your mockup as soon as possible after your order is received to get it to you within the promised time frame, so cancellations are not accepted after 24 hours. Please respond promptly with your input for the mockup as work will not begin until you approve it.
As most work is done to order specifically for you, returns and refunds are not possible on custom. If your order arrives damaged or is lost in the mail, let me know and I'll make it right. Be sure the mockup I send to your email is how you want the final design to look.
Processing time is an estimate. For most custom products, that will be within 2 weeks. If you absolutely must have your order by a certain date, please contact me before ordering. While I can promise the date I will ship. I cannot guarantee delivery times as sometimes things just happen. If you are local to Rosamond, CA, you are welcome to pickup.
Shipping and Insurance
Shipping times are estimates. Once accepted by the post office, priority usually takes 1-3 days, and ground UPS/FEDEX takes 1-6 days. However, occasionally things are delayed or misdirected. Shipping arrival is not guaranteed except for Priority EXPRESS.
All items are shipped insured. Lost items cannot be claimed until 15 days have passed for domestic and 30 days for international. Damaged items will need to have photos taken and the packing material kept. Please contact me for details.
