I had made a scissor lamp a while back and used it as a base to make a scissor arm for my tablet. I just built a built in bookcase in the bedroom and I attached the arm to the edge of the bookcase and it extends far enough to hold the tablet while I am laying in bed. The wood is Maple and Elm. The dowel is Oak from Home Depot.
The strips are 1/4 inch x 1 inch x 14 inches. Each pivot point uses a 1/4 inch bolt with three flat washers and a nyloc nut. It extends out about 40 inches.
The tablet I have is an iPad and it holds it well.
