5 minute project that solves a windy day problem for book reading lovers. Simple, easy to make and very handy. Also, it can be a good present for friends.

Very handy reading tool, good for present, I agree. You made it very well. I made a few also in some of my previous post, very fun and easy to make.

No, I drilled the hole, draw the outer shape around the hole, cut it out away of the line by band saw and used grinder to smoothen and some hand sanding. It was ready. When I showed it to a friend, he asked me for it. I gave it to him and went to make another one. As easy as that.
