    **Message from User:**
    I’m needing a lap tray made for my wheelchair. 18″ wide and 12″ deep. I would like an edge guard to prevent items from slipping off the tray. On the left side of tray, I would like to have a slightly inset to set a cup into.Please connect with me if you can make this for me!

    Needs design. Please reply below if you can help!

    @MMC_Chad found this in the Superstore. Right dimensions, just need an inset for the cup.
    Is there Superstore in MB? @MMC_Suzanne?

    Hi Suzanne,

    Is this still outstanding ? If so, I can handle. Pretty straightforward. I have the tools at home and pretty sure I have some wood that I can use.

    Hi Marc, Thanks for reaching out. I’ll check in with the requester and get back to you.

    Hi there,

    Is help still needed here? I’d be happy to help, I could create a 3D printed design.

    Hi Julia, I am not sure what area you are in but the requester is in Manitoba. I do have a maker who has connected with the requester to help but I’m not sure what design he is using. I can connect you via email if you would like to contact the maker, you may be able to work together to find a solution?

    Please let me know if you are ok with me passing your email details on.

    Thanks Suzanne

    Hi Suzanne,

    I am from the British Columbia area. I am not sure I can help if the maker is creating the device using woodworking tools, but if the maker is incorparting a 3D Computer Aided Design I could help. I am okay with passing on my email to the maker to see if we can collaborate.

    Thanks,
    Julia

    Ok Julia, I know the maker, Marc, uses 3D printing so it might be something you can work on together for a 3d version? I’ll pass on your details.

    Thanks

    Okay, thank you!

    @juliacpaler and I are working on this. First concept drawing done.

    #8338

    Concept drawing approved. Just waiting on some measurements to create a mockup. Tray needed to be anchored to the chair so we went with velcro straps around the armrests. In addition, L brackets (or U brackets if I can find large ones) will sit on either side of each armrest to provide lateral stability, ![lap tray v1|500×500](upload://rQzPKfZM8I1IWM6BIhSRmceKEe6.png)

    Drawing is just to show the idea, actual tray likely much smaller as I’d worry about the lever effect with such a large unsupported surface.
