I don't have time to futz around with drivers when I want to scan a document at work. I've tried using my phone to scan documents before but found I couldn't hold the phone stable and level enough to get a picture I wasn't embarrassed to work with. Luckily for me, the high school I work at has a wood shop, so I just took one of my shelves down to the shop, chucked a big Forstner bit into the drill press, and put a hole in the shelf. Add some Ikea strip lights, and I had a cheap, quick, and easy document camera. 

Very clever and simple, love it!

Cool! I needed a way to turn my DSLR into a scanner. I was thinking of hanging it from my bed, but this looks much easier. I'll just make a shelf above my desk.
