There’s no need to drop $20+ on a tablet stands; this $3 DIY version is sturdy, cheap, and sports a slim profile.
Courtesy of Instructables user Enero, this simple hack is dirt cheap and assembles in seconds. All you’ll need is a metal bookend the appropriate size for your tablet (about $1 at office supply stores) and some rubber lamp feet from the hardware store (about $2 a pack). Stick the rubber feet at the bottom of the bookend to form a track for the edge of the tablet and at the top to provide a soft area to rest it against, and you’re in business. Check out the tutorial at the link below for extras photos showing the exact placement arrangement he used for the stands.
