Hey /diy/ I want to make a bed table like the picture I've just made. I want it to be like a C to fit the bed by the side. Also with some wheels to move it around. It has to be big enough to fit a 17,3" laptop with a mouse by it's side. This table will be used to have breakfast and study/do homework. So with my current laptop's weight plus my arms, I figured it should support at least 20 Kg to be safe.
As it will be used for gaming from bed, it should feel firm and steady in the right side (where will be floating in the air).
I also wish it could be adjusted in height at least 5 or 10cm (more is welcome but I think no more than 20 is necessary).
I plan to use cheap wood, maybe that one that it's pressed wood (don't really know the English term for it, will provide a picture as 1st replay)
I will be eternally grateful for any thoughts, guides, advices, absolutly anything you can come up with (maths, phisics (for the firm and steady and weight support part), ...) that could help me make this table true. I will provide pictures about the process of making it :D

Okay, here is the deal.
I want to replace the lettering on my Game Boy. Specifically, the black Play It Loud! model (picture related) I've researched a bit and while I think I can get the right paint to use (enamel paint, brushed on), I have no idea how to obtain/make a stencil, or otherwise paint the lettering I want onto the plastic. I tried making one by printing out the lettering I want and hand-cutting it, but it turned out terrible.
The font I wish to use is Hammerfat.
So, can I get a little help, /diy/?
If you're curious as to why I want to do this, this thing is intended for live chiptune sets, and it's fun playing LSDJ sets with a customized DMG.

Hey there /diy/. I'm not a native to these parts, but I come seeking your wisdom.
Long story short, managed to bust one of these on accident today, with help from some female company. It's at my place of business, and I'd really like to repair it without the owner finding out.
The sink itself isn't damaged. The caulking that was holding it the wall is torn off, but I don't see any damage to the wall. There's also a metal bracket on the bottom of the sink that was supporting the weight. That's now bent outward, allowing the sink to loll forward. Without the caulking or the bracket properly holding it it won't stay up unsupported (left it for the night with a table propping it up).
Is this something I can take care of myself? I'm not familiar with a caulking gun but I'm pretty good at learning-by-doing.
