Introduction: Scrap Wood Rustic Mod Tablet Holder

Picture of Scrap Wood Rustic Mod Tablet Holder

When I needed a holder for my tablet, I turned to my workshop instead of the store. This is what I came up with, a stylish tablet holder made entirely with scrap wood! It's easy to make and requires only a few hand tools that most DIYers would have on hand... basically a saw and hammer is all that is need to make this project. The holder can be left raw, stained or painted to match any decor.

Step 1:

Start by cutting the pieces. You'll need a long and short bottom piece and front and rear top brace.

Step 2:

Attach Short Bottom. Place the Top Back Brace on the workbench, so the top of the brace is facing the workbench and the angle is on the left side. Apply glue to the edge of the brace farthest away from you, place the Short Bottom allowing it to hang off the angled edge of the brace and making sure the other edges are flush with the top brace. Attach using 1-1/4″ nails.

Step 3:

Attach Long Bottom. With the Top Back Brace still on the workbench, apply glue to the edge of the brace closest to you, place the Long Bottom allowing it to hang off the angled edge of the brace and making sure the other edges are flush with the top brace. Attach using 1-1/4″ nails.

Step 4:
