How ThaPlanka Is Creating Innovative Foldable Laptop Tables That Create Convenience For Students. ThaPlanka was established in 2020 by Thabang Shiners who is self-taught carpenter by watching videos, when he started ThaPlanka, he did not know how to use a circular saw,angle grinder, jigsaw and others but he managed through the use of online resources hence its motto is no risk, no story.
The inspiration came from watching videos of woodworking and always visiting the page that are woodwork related and he also wanted to walk in the footsteps of his father. “I was doing assignments on my bed during lockdown, then I realised how much more convenient having a foldable laptop table would be. The Birth of thaplanka started there.” Thabang Shinners said on the company’s website.
Students were forced to return home during the lockdown due to the rising number of cases of Covid 19 and were introduced to online learning. Many of these students do not have the resources such as a study desk at home as they come from disadvantaged backgrounds, where they do not have their own space or their own room for a study desk. This solution by Thabang Shiners will allow not only students but also professionals who work on their laptops to have a convenient way of working on their laptops.
Carpentry is a skilled trade and a craft in which the primary work performed is the cutting, shaping and installation of building materials during the construction of buildings, ships, timber bridges, concrete formwork, etc. Carpenters traditionally worked with natural wood and did rougher work such as framing, but today many other materials are also used and sometimes the finer trades of cabinetmaking and furniture building are considered carpentry. This black owned company seeks to bring innovative designs that will create change in their client’s way of life.
