After a lot of over-thinking, here’s a simple design that not only holds a tablet, but acts as a stand.

That’s a keeper Steve. I got my wife one too and I think she could use a case. Nice design and nice fit & finish. So what did you do with “Kooky Steve”? I miss him.

Yes, once again, another wonderful project Steve. My sister’s kids got her a Kindle for Christmas. She is going to need a case for it. Did you happen to jot down some dimensions? Would you be willing to pass them along? Thanks.

Love your projects Steve, and the whole “mere mortals” thing really works for me. Thanks.

Questions:
1. Do you think you could have made it with the bottom intact? That is, don’t route the cavity all the way through, but leave the bottom in place.
2. What kind of wood? Looks like poplar or maybe cherry? guessing by the router burn :)
