DIY tablet stand for the kitchen

Tablets
[NOISE] [MUSIC] Hey guys, you know with the holiday season right upon us you're probably going to be doing a lot more cooking than you normally would. You know when I cook I like to have tablet nearby so I can see my recipes, but not every tablet stand is really conducive to kitchen cooking, you know. There's. Flour flying everywhere, there's spices going every which way, who knows? So what you can do is you can build your own DIY tablet stand for a low price, and it's gonna look a little bit more appropriate in the kitchen. So, here's what you're gonna need. First, you'll want a cutting board, like so. A kid's triangle-shaped wooden block. A wooden scrabble tile holder, and some wood glue. So here's what you're gonna do. First you're gonna take your cutting board, now you can stain it, you can paint your cutting board if you want, I'm gonna go for the raw natural look, I really like the natural look and feel of this one, also, I'm a little lazy. So you're gonna take the board, you're gonna make sure first that your tablet will actually fit on the board. You want it to be as wide and as tall as your tablet. So, my tablet is about 9.5 inches tall, and about 7.5 inches wide. So, my cutting board, thankfully, is 8.5 inches wide, and it's about a foot tall. You're gonna take your Scrabble tile holder, you wanna make sure first that, you know, the size of the canals aren't blocked. If they're blocked, your tablet won't actually be able to fit in there. So to make sure those aren't blocked. The wooden, older ones are better for that. You're gonna take that, and you're gonna apply one stream to the back of the towel holder. So we're gonna apply that to the bottom of the cutting board. Want to center it as best as possible, and leave about a centimeter of space. [MUSIC] Okay, now that that's dry, we move on to the next step which is to use the basic kids building block. If you don't have either of those you can go to the hardware store and get a pice of wood cut for really cheap. One thing you want to make sure is it's at least at a 40 degree angle. You know, if you wanted this tablet to sit higher you might want to go higher, to 50 or 60. Also you want to make sure the block is at least three inches tall. Okay, now we're gonna apply one stream of wood glue to the longest side here. See right in the middle like this. [MUSIC] Okay, let's check to see if everything's dried. Feels pretty secure to me. Lets try it out. There's your tablet stand right there. That's less than $20.00 you can pay more or less but that's pretty good deal for a tablet stand lets try it out. Alright. There's a recipe right there. You can put it horizontally of course. Of course, you can put it vertically. Boom. It's a very simple way to build a tablet stand. Now you're gonna be cooking a lot this holiday season, what better way to do that than with a tablet right at your fingertips and a nice, appropriate-looking stand. Awesome. [MUSIC]
