Randy over at Instructables made this handy and simple laptop stand by bending some acrylic. He cut the attractive and heat-dissipating holes with a laser cutter, which you could do by sending it off to Ponoko, or cut them out by hand with a hole saw or Forstner bit. This simple project gives me lots of ideas for modifications and expansions to fully customize your own laptop stand for a fraction of the cost of a commercial one.
