My son used some money he had saved along with money received as Christmas gifts to buy himself a Nexus 7 tablet. Just before Christmas I had a chance to retrieve some wood from the scrap wood bin at work. The two events together gave me the idea to build a quick project (My total project count for 2013 matches my total project count for 2012). This is by no means fine woodworking, but it was fun. Out of two small scraps of 1/2” plywood I cut strips and glued into a block. I cut the block to the shape seen in the pictures (which holds the tablet at a 30 degree angle), sanded, and then applied a few coats of shellac. I piece of felt dresses up the bottom a little.

Great looking tablet stand, I like the layered look of the plywood.

Thanks for the compliments! Having seen pictures of projects made with layers of plywood, I wanted to create one to see in real life what it looked like. I like the look too, especially because this wasn’t created with high grade plywood, but instead was made out of scraps of plywood used to make shipping crates.
