This is the prototype I just finished. I used two pieces of scrap maple, some brass rod and threaded inserts. The bottom piece of wood has a 1/4-20 insert for the tripod and a 3/8” slot routed on the topside for the tablet to sit in. I drilled two holes on the ends and epoxied the rods in. On the top piece of wood I routed a slot for the top of the tablet to sit in and drilled two end holes for the rod to go through. I used a 10-24 die to thread the rods and 10-24 inserts on the small wood knobs.
On my next one I am going to round over all the edges and lay some insulation tape on the bottom of the slots to cushion the tablet. I also think I will buy some small knurled brass knobs just for the look. I am also going to shorten the two pieces of wood slightly to bring everything more compact.
