Easy Tablet Stand for Under 5$

Introduction: Easy Tablet Stand for Under 5$

About: I just happen to be the future ruler of the known world. Until then, however, I shall continue to rule my workshop with an iron fist.

The other day I was typing on my Kindle, and I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't it be great if I could type without holding my Kindle thus allowing me to multitask?" I swiveled in my chair and caught a glimpse of my bookshelf. What could that be? A bookend? What could I do with that?

All you need to make this is a small bookend, some sticky pads (optional), and the edge of a desk or other piece of furniture.

To build it, just experiment with bending the bookend. find a comfortable angle for using your tablet, and bend the bookend over the edge of the desk. Put some sticky pads or felt tape down where the tablet makes contact with the stand, and you're done! Depending on the type of charger you have, this can become a charging base, too.

Version 2.0 will be coming soon...

    What, no comments on this awesomely simple idea? I looked at it and realized that I had one of those bookends collecting dust in my shed and just waiting for an opportunity like this. Voila, new stand for my new Nook HD+, with the bonus that I can plug it into the charger while on the stand. Bravo!

    I'm glad you found a good use for it. But while we're on the subject, I actually use this as a reading stand too.
