There are many ways you can make the book holder. In fact, my first book holder was made entirely of cardboard, and it worked well enough to digitize my first book. After thinking about this, I chose to use a pre-made miter box as the start, because it is very cheap ($6) at Harbor Freight, and because it can also be used to produce the scanner.

(I used this same principle in buying clamps. You use the clamps to assemble the device and to operate it. In other words, the tools become the machine).
