The Best of the DIY Tablet Stands [Unpluggd]

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    For $0.99 (US) you can swing into the Walmart and grab a decorative plate display thingamabob. Works great when you’re just wanting to view. Not so great when you want to interact. At least it does for me. I use it on my nightstand to watch video.

    I use a composition notebook set on edge with the cover folded up (1 inch or so) as a ledge. Throw the bulk of the pages to the rear for the stability factor and you’re good to go, all for free with a recycled old journal.

    I buy the $1 picture display thingamabob at the dollar store to use as the stand for my pan digital.
