Told you I was gonna build it :P It just took longer than 1 day ^///^ One cool thing about is now I can store my razor nostromo insde and route the cord through it. It's not adjustable, but I hardly ever adjusted my old cardboard stand anyway heh!

After moving the carboard stand on and off the desk every day, it just started to feel clunky with the way it flopped around. And the tablet pc slipped off of it a few times when I was working >.<  So that's my reason for making a more sturdy wooden stand. Less hobo, more old school :D

oh man youre still using one of those? when you wanna upgrade, the elitebook 2760p is the last one i know of with that form factor and wacom screen.

Yes lol! Hey, I got two off ebay for $45! Can't beat that price :D I like to use it for sketching and inking, and use my PC for coloring.  I'm not really a fan of the form factor though. Do you know of any cheap decent wacom enabled laptops with better specs? XD

the elitebook 2760p has way better specs. i5 quadcore, 4gb+ram, solid state drive. same featureset and swivel, much lighter overall.

I've been reading up on that one. Even saw one go on ebay for $40 -_- and missed it argh! I'll keep an eye out though!  It looks like a nice lil computer to run windows 7 on.  I read that it's got a max RAM size of 16gb too.

hey....not a bad idea.....i think i can make one for my  27 inches cintiq....i just  cant pay 500 dollars for their official stand, thanks for sharing this idea.

*drools* Oh man....I wish I had one of those. I'm saving up to buy one atm. Do you have the touch model? And I hear you on that $500, that is insane!  If you don't mind a suggestion, if you go to build one for such a big tablet, I think you should make it adjustable. At the bottom front edge, attach it with door hinges instead of glue. Then glue some "slots" of wood along the bottom and top on the inside, just wide enough for your wood's thickness. Then you can just cut a piece of whatever height you want it to be and slide it into place.  And you're welcome btw ^^

i have the 27 inches qhd cintiq. and....yeah.....it is worth every overpriced dollar it costed me.

as for the stand, yeah, i am considering a foldable beach chair like system, to adjust height on at least threee levels. and yeah....this thing is heavy as all heck. but again, worth every penny.

Hmm...I thought they reduced the weight of it compared to the Cintiq 21UX ? Isn't the 27QHD like 20 lbs?  Oh and you could always just buy an ergotron arm for like $140 and have it hover over your desk.

the ergotorm is not avasilable in venezuela. so i must save to bring it here.
Whippy

Not bad!  Good design for a stand.  Is it only held together by glue?
Whippy
8 months, 3 weeks ago
Yep! Just elmer's wood glue! I tried screw at first, but it started to split the wood base. So I glued a side, waited a day, glued another side, etc. It seems to be holding up pretty well so far.

Not bad!  If you do want to secure it with a little metal, a trip to a hardware store and a cheap hinge would probably work to reinforce those corners.  Or just duct tape for a little extra skookum in case the glue starts to give..  
Whippy

I might get some "L" brackets for it later on. Heh, I think the wood glue will hold a lot better than the tape did on cardboard though :P

congratulations, nice one)
and thickness of that laptop is just wow xD even in comparison of my old thinkpad
Whippy

:D I know right? One and a half inches. About as thick as a grilled cheese sandwich. Thinking about selling my other samsung tablet to get a better tablet pc ^^;

That's a great laptop. All metal body plus glass screen make it super durable as well. I used one of those for years.
Whippy

Oh yeah?  It's not bad for simple tasks :P Maybe even run a few NES and SNES emulators. It tends to choke at the high resolutions I use in SAI though ^^;  But it's certainly not bad for sketching and inking.

Heck yeah! Working with wood is 1000 times simpler than fixing a broken piece of plastic :P

I really love these traditional tablet pc's and luckily whilst working in pc repair service back in the day i had the ability to try quite a few of them. The best part these old tablet computers had battery free pressure sensitive stylus pen, everything was powered by itself unlike today when you need to buy those AAAA batteries which are expensive and hard to find. They come at a bargain price now and am tempted to get one of those and play some arcade pinball from windows xp :p
