In this set of free woodworking plans, we've got a much better solution. We've built a beautiful hardwood computer monitor riser that sits under one or two monitors to raise them up over five inches! Additionally, the unit includes two very useful dovetailed drawers that are large enough to hold magazines or papers. You could even use it to raise a television a few inches higher in your living room or bedroom.
To complete these computer monitor riser plans, we used maple for the visible parts of the unit with poplar for the carcase and drawers. However, oak or another desirable hardwood would work well for the exterior, as would pine for the interior parts.
This woodworking project will really show off your skills as a craftsman, and is one you'll be proud to display for years and years.
