I made this last summer when I got the new Galaxy Tab. Up to now I hadn’t thought of taking a picture of itself in the mirror.

Infinity mirror.

The case is 1/2” oak and is 1-1/8” thick. 1/2” back, 3/8” dado and 1/4” lip.

Each dado is 1/4” deep and have a couple of felt pads as shock absorbers. The fit is snug and the tablet doesn’t move in any way.

The back is drilled and countersunk for the tablets camera.

Countersink gets rid of “tunnel vision”

The top edge was sanded on the 1” OSS to form the notch to access the power button. Likewise the right end was sanded for the power cord plug.

The right end is secured with two countersunk screws so the tablet can be removed and replaced, the fit of the end is exact and snug on its own.

I experimented with using magnets but found that they wouldn’t hold securely enough for careless handling.
