Tablet stand made from a 400 page book and some epoxy resin. Paper micarta is the proper term for it, but it doesn’t really capture the essence of the idea. Those 400 pages hold but a single story, and now they can upright a device capable of holding thousands of stories. And with only a book and 30 some odd ounces of epoxy, you can make your own! Just don’t use a book that is one of your favorites. Which honestly is why I picked this one, and the fact that the name was well suited! Really it’s the ultimate upcycling!
|After 30 ounces of epoxy I was getting close to exhausting my supply!|
|Even with all these clamps there was still a slight wave to the pages|
|I really wanted to get down to the words. Now this is heavy reading!|
|I put on a brand new belt for my sander and it was totally gummed up by the end.|
|Cutting the groove was a simple matter of setting the blade to 20* and making a series of passes.|
|Add a little enamel for protection and you’re done!|
