Introduction: Book to Tablet Stand

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

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 ;)
