A tablet or an Ipad requires the use of both hands! But when cooking, training, or doing DIY projects, it’s more often than not impossible to use both hands – you have to put down your device somewhere. And if you don’t want to risk breaking it by dropping it anywhere, a tablet holder is more than necessary!
Making your own tablet stand comes with great perks:
- Adjust the stand to the angle you prefer
- Choose your favorite color of tubes and fittings
- Adapt the dimensions of the stand to your device
