Vertical stands are cool things if you want to display your laptop when you aren’t working on it. Besides the the laptop stored vertically occupies less space than the one stored horizontally.
Here is a DIY vertical laptop stand that looks almost like real stone. It’s made of black high-density foam that sometimes is part of packaging of high-end equipment.
All you need to do is cut a simple monolithic brick of the foam. After that you need to cut a simple fitted slot and cut some corners to make the stand looks like it’s rock.
