So I’m looking for advice on how to go about planning a tiny little construction project for myself.
My skill and knowhow here is flat zero. What I’m trying to do is to secure a flush piece of wood to the top of my existing mouse pad area of a laptop “cart” to expand the mouse area. I’m not actually looking for solutions (though I won’t frown on suggestions) but more I’m looking for advice on how I should map this out. It seems like a silly little project but I want to do this right.
- Due to the fact that I use my 4KTV as my main monitor, I use a mobile laptop desk for my keyboard and mouse. The keyboard just barely fits and I don’t use a mousepad but the mouse works fine on the small bit of wood attached to the main piece of wood. It’s small though.
- I recently bought the Logitech Wireless G502 and the accompanying PowrrPlay wireless inductive charging mouse pad which is gigantic and way too large for my laptop mouse area as-is.
- I am not handy.
My father advised I just put another piece of wood on top of the existing piece of wood, large enough to secure the mouse pad. I think that’s a good, jury-rigged solution. I have the tools I would need except maybe a saw. Just trying to figure out the best way to plan this out.
I may want to do similar other mini-projects in the future too.
