So, A while back I bought several NJYtouch monitor kits.
This is where one of them ended up.
technically, I did do all of this in an afternoon, but I think it's kinda deserving of it's own thread.
If people just disagree with me THAT much, feel free to take the extra effort to merge it and crap.
It still needs some more paint (I'm going to make it black) and some 2*1/8 bolts with wing nuts to finish it all off, but it's pretty well done now.
It's pretty damn cool what I can do with scrap wood.
If you've got a yard of 1*8, a drill, and a jigsaw, you can likely make this in less than 2 hours.
Just a tip, the circles were drawn by tracing the inside of a roll of duct tape, and the squared off ends of the hemispheres that aren't in my design are a tangential line extending 1.5 inches and then I just took a square to find where the other one would end up. The holes for the hinge are drilled at center on the screen half and in line with the front of to pillars and at center of the circles vertically.
Basically, I just made an open source afternoon monitor stand that most anyone with appropriate tools can build for under $10. You're welcome.
