This is my first project using Box Joints. I made that Jig I figure I might as well use it! any way this is for my Girlfriend, she is always using her I-pad in bed to surf the net and never has anything to properly balance it. it’s really simple and has a side compartment with a tiny little drawer for accessories. thanks for looking!
