Hey remember that iPad holder/stand/slantboard thing I tried to whip up a while back? I went back to the virtual drawing board that is SketchUp, came up with a different design, and made the thing.


I used scrap pine I had lying around for the frame, and bought a sheet of dry-erase hardboard for the top. What you don’t see is under that shelf-looking bit; I attached a piece of EVA foam that sits a little higher than the bottom of the frame so “Student” can use this on his lap as well. There’s an overhang all the way around the top so we can use binder clips to attach papers. 

All that planning, sawing, gluing, nailing, sanding, spraying… I ended up with a product that I’m proud of. However, “Student” was unimpressed and tossed it to the floor. Not a total loss, because I enjoyed the process and gained experience.
