I just got my first tablet on Black Friday. I know, I'm a little late to the tablet party. I couldn't have been the only person in America without a tablet, right?! I quickly realized once I started using it that I would need some accessories.

I would also need some kind of holder. A holder for reading or for when using the tablet for recipes in the kitchen, etc. You know me, I don't buy, I build, so I searched for some DIY tablet holders. The ones I found seemed a little complicated to make. I bet I could come up with an easy to build holder that was attractive too.

I went to my shop, cut a few pieces of scrap wood and put together a prototype. I used it for a week, made some tweaks to the design and came up with this plan.

The wood gives it a rustic feel, but the angles and asymmetry give it a modern look.

Once all of the pieces were cut, I began assembling. First I attached the short bottom piece.

Finally a finish was applied. The tablet holder was ready for use once the stain was dry.

    This would be cool for an ipad/phone too. I tend to use my phone to pull up recipes rather than the ipad since a child usually has one of those.
