Tablet stand made from a 400 page book and some epoxy resin. Paper micarta is the proper term for it, but it doesn't really capture the essence of the idea. Those 400 pages hold but a single story, and now they can upright a device capable of holding thousands of stories.
Really it's the ultimate upcycling!

And with only a book and 30 some odd ounces of epoxy, you can make your own!

Thank for you for idea Caleb: http://makezine.com/author/calebkkraft/

I love how you make it sound like it's. just for more reading... haha. great idea though.
<p>This is awesome! I'm definately gonna have to make one.</p>
<p> the book makes a great stand for a tablet nice job</p>
<p>If you add small pieces of cereal box carboard in between the pages so that ther are un-evenly leveled, you could get &quot;3D-waves&quot; once flattened with the sander. Same things knifemakers do in their micarta to make patterns and decorations ;)</p>
<p>Is that how they do it? Thanks I really appreciate the knoweldge! </p>
look at this great other 'ible to get the idea, the pictures at step 4<br> ;-)
<p>Wow, this is really cool! :O</p>

Looks very good
<p>What?!?! this is so cool!</p>
<p>Wild right?! Thank you as always!</p>
<p>Neat idea, well crafted video with clear instructions. Wondering, could you have left the book cover on?</p>
<p>Totally! I really wanted to see the words on the outside, but you could absolutley have left the cover on. </p>
