I got tired of propping up my tablet with scrapwood to hold the screen at a good viewing angle. So I came up with this simple tablet stand. It consists of a back with two legs joined with notches, as shown in the drawing. I cut these notches using a dado blade, but you could just as easily use a coping saw. To protect fine furniture from scratches, I glued and wrapped the bottom edges of each piece with felt.
