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/

If you add small pieces of cereal box carboard in between the pages so that ther are un-evenly leveled, you could get "3D-waves" once flattened with the sander. Same things knifemakers do in their micarta to make patterns and decorations ;)

Neat idea, well crafted video with clear instructions. Wondering, could you have left the book cover on?

Totally! I really wanted to see the words on the outside, but you could absolutley have left the cover on.
