JAY D-I-Y: How to make a simple tablet holder

This project is perfect for all skill levels, and the holder can be used to hold everything from cookbooks, to photos, to your iPad.

CLEVELAND — We're back with another fun project you can try at home, and in the latest series in our latest JAY D-I-Y my goal was to bring you a project that truly anyone can master - a simple tablet holder.

Making a tablet holder out of either an old piece of barn wood or new wood that you want to paint or stain is super easy!

First, you must decide the size of your holder based on the tablet or picture you plan to use with it. I want mine to be 10 1/2 inches wide by 12 inches high so I draw my cut marks to those dimensions on my wood. My second piece needs to be a little more than half of the length so I make my marks at 7 inches high and again the same 10 1/2 inches wide.

You can you a circular saw, jigsaw, table saw it even hand saw to cut your pieces.

Once they are cut you draw new lines in each piece 1 and 2 inches up from the bottom of each boards that go half the distance of the 10 1/2 inch width which would be 5 1/4 inches. Using a jigsaw, cut the lines out of each board. Lightly sand all of your edges to avoid any splintering, then interlock the 2 pieces and your stand is ready. Paint or stain if needed but the old barn wood makes a great worn look!

Use your finished holder to hold anything from books, to photos or artwork, or of course, your favorite tablet. Happy crafting!
