A dual printer stand is used to hold two printers and printing supplies. There are three shelves, two to hold the printer and one to hold extra paper, ink cartridges and other accessories to the printers. Dual printer stands are either stationary or mobile. Stationary stands are easy to build even for the novice carpenter. They can be constructed out of basic pine boards and basic hardware. Printer stands will add organisation to any office.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay three 20-inch boards flat, parallel and spaced 12 inches apart. Lay the 48-inch board perpendicularly on top of them so one edge is flush with the ends of the 20-inch board and so the ends of the 48-inch board are flush with the edges of the two outside 20-inch boards. Screw through the 48-inch board so three screws enter each 20-inch board. Repeat this step with the last three 20-inch boards and 48-inch board.

  2. 2

    Position the two 48-inch boards on end, parallel, so the 20-inch boards are between them and aligned. Position the 48-inch plywood against the edges of the 48-inch board and the ends of the 20-inch boards. The edges of the plywood should be flush to the sides of the 48-inch boards. Screw the plywood to the boards so five screws enter each board.

  3. 3

    Set the 24-inch plywood sheets on top of the 20-inch boards so the edges are flush. Screw six screws through each sheet of plywood into the 20-inch boards. Three screws should be used on each board. These are the shelves for your two printers and other printing supplies.

  4. 4

    Drill two 1-inch holes through the 48-inch plywood. There should be a hole 2 inches above the bottom and second shelf, with each hole 10-inches away from the 48-inch boards. These holes will provide outlets for your power and printer cords.
