Steering Wheel Desk

Post  Highplains Drifter on Sun Feb 19, 2012 12:36 am

I just despise trying to write on a clip board laid against the steering wheel, I did an internet search and they make them, but want $20 plus shipping.



So this is my template I cut some ¾” plywood 16” x 18” since I have a 16” steering wheel. I cut a 2” x 12” throat and cut opposite bevels in it to get the desk to tilt. I do the fine tune tilt with the actual steering wheel. I plan on making my final with plexi-glass.

No the desk won't but if you notice in the last photo it is leaning against a mobile lap top holder.....actually checking e-mails on the run is safer then texting... What a Face

Naw....that couldn't be, or is it? Evil or Very Mad

I'd use that thing; I like pulling into my driveway at 3 am logging my time with my clipboard laying up against the steering wheel blowing my horn. Neighbors have to hate me. Leave the outside speaker on, back up alarm.... hell with em.

I set up something similar for my motorhome with 2 positions 1 for reading and writing and 1 for eating.
A mans truck is his motor home.
Walmart makes the best trash bags, they even come with trash already in em. Twisted Evil
