A trivet? a tablet stand? a book stand?
All of the above…....
It’s a trivet, that converts to an Ipad or tablet stand. Flip it over and it serves well as cookbook stand…. one advantage of this design is that toy can position both the tablet and or cookbook at just about any angle. The frame is made of cherry and the fold out tab and the tension nobs are cocobolo. To avoid slippage I have a rubber washer inset between the frame and backrest. I have tested it with an encyclopedia size book with no slippage.

Hindsight being perfect as always next time I make this I will put the fold out rest on the other end of the stand which would allow me to make it 5 1/2” vise the current 3” the overall dimensions are 10” x 7 1/2” x 5/8’

Thanks for Looking
