Default Simplest thing Ive ever made. Post yours

My wife said she wanted a stand for the tablet. We are going on a road trip for 2hrs tomorrow with or 6yr old and 1.5yr old. We need to play a movie.

So instead of running around town try to buy one I went to the garage and thru this together.

5min with the table saw and the torch we got this masterpiece. It is specifically engineered to exact specifications required to rest on console and wedge between the front driver and passenger seat. Lol

With the price of lumber Im considering selling them for $95 each. Haha I could turn a profit of about $50 on a 8 2x4.

Looks good!
My kids like to paint on the canvas boards so I made one similar to this to hold them up as well. We use it for tablets, phones, and painting.

Pretty good! Might have to do something similar but with a hole at the bottom to hook up a charger

Used a roughing pass on a cnc router. Takes about 3 minutes to make the whole thing.

Now, I'm not saying maintenance was easy. But definitely well worth it.

.22 bullet holder for my elderly neighbor to help him put the bullets in his M54 Winchester target rifle. It's just 2 pieces of banding strap with a groove in one and welded across the ends.

Pretty handy set of skills ya got there.
Worth a million to keep the kids occupied on road trips!

Found/seen another cool woodworking project you might like to tackle.

And bet these would sell better than a "buy a tablet holder, get an egg holder free", type of sales.

I know I'd buy one (and I don't even shoot guns (much). Lol.

Be sure and send me a quote after the first completion.

Anyhow, I thought this was pretty neat.
