Snip! Slash! Staple! Make A MacBook Desk Stand From An Old Pizza Box.

I always thought the handiest thing I could do with a pizza box was to toss it in the trash and use the little three-legged plastic widget (the one that stops the lid from touching your cheese) as a milking stool for my Barbies.

But I was wrong. Assuming that you can keep the cheesy grease off the box, then a few cuts and folds will turn it into this awesome MacBook stand.

Mmm… Pizzzzaaaa… Oh, sorry. I didn’t know you were still there. Well, at least now I have an empty pizza box to make this project.

The design, by Russia’s Ilya Andreev, is ingenious. It requires a few quick cuts and creases, plus a staple or two, and you’re left with a wedge of cardboard which will hold a 17-inch MacBook or smaller at a 25-degree angle. There’s even a cable router formed from one of the steam holes.

I have saved this to my Evernote to be used next time I’m staying in a hotel. I invariably order up a $20 pizza from room service, and once the night porter has defrosted me a margarita, microwaved it and carried it up to my room, now I’ll have some extra fun to enjoy while the oily mess oozes its way through my digestive tract.


  1. You might be wondering why I had Barbies as a child. The answer is that I stole them from the girls in my neighborhood to form my own private “joy division” for my Action Men – the UK equivalent of GI Joe. Hence the milkmaid fantasy outfits.
