My wife and I both use E-Readers, myself, because there are a limited number of paper books available, and my Wife, because books in Colombia are horrendously expensive. Anyway I digress… My wife wanted a stand for hers, so she could read it comfortably in bed, without having to hold it all the time.
So I came up with a simple design, made of scrap wood lying around the workshop, in this case, some 3/4” ply for the back support, 6mm MDF for the backboard and front strips, and some pine for the side and bottom spacers.
I won’t go into dimensions, because every E-Reader is different, but I ensured the side spacers were a snug fit, and allowed 2mm extra depth so that the Reader would slide in and out without a problem. I stained all the parts before assembly, so I apologise for it not being that easy to see, and after gluing the side and bottom spacers, I then attached the front 6mm strips, to keep the Reader in place.
Finally, I attached the back support, by gluing and screwing, using 5/8” screws. The triangle is angled backward, both to make the Reader easier to see, and to create a good balance, again the angle depends on what is comfortable for you.
I was a bit worried that one support would not be sufficient, when stood on a soft surface, such as a bed, but it works well.
Now I am going back to jigs, and the first will be a taper jig.
