Do you love to try new online recipes? I love to try new recipes, but I spend the whole time running between my table and my kitchen countertops. My countertops lack space for my laptop and I worry my tablet will become a casualty. To solve the problem I built a tablet stand to keep my tablet up and out of harm’s way. And, today, I’m going to show you how to build a rustic tablet stand so you can have one too.
First, you’ll need two boards the same thickness and cut to the same length. Sand both boards till smooth.
Next, use the Kreg Jig to drill holes in the middle and both ends of one of the boards. If you don’t own the Kreg Jig, drill your holes at an angle to connect the boards.
Then, line up boards and screw the holes to join the boards.
Next, paint a cute saying or numbers on one of the boards. After the paint has dried, lightly sand to distress the paint.
Cut an additional strip of a board for the platform. Either nail or screw the platform in place.
I added two adhesives felt pads to the top of the platform for scratch protection and to prevent my Kindle from resting on it’s on and off button. My Kindles power button is located in the middle and bottom and when placed in the vertical position the Kindle will go to sleep or turn off. By adding the adhesive felt pads, it prevents the buttons from touching the platform.
For the kickstand, cut a piece of wood at an angle on both ends and screw into place.
Now, you’re ready to try those awesome recipes you’ve been dying to try. And, if you’re like me you have a million recipes that you’ve been dying to try pinned on Pinterest. Well, maybe not a million but you know what I mean.
Can you believe it’s day twenty? Eleven more days of pallet topics coming up.
