DIY: Kitchen Tablet Holder

Following recipes will be as easy as pie with this project!


If you are one of those who love whipping up treats and hearty meals in the kitchen, the struggle of trying to prop up a cookbook or an iPad to follow a recipe might be familiar to you. Aside from risking your gadgets from getting wet and stained, it can be challenging to turn pages on the screen while doing something else. 

To help you out, check out this easy DIY project that might just put an end to your cooking dilemma: 

What you need: 

  • Old cutting board
  • Old Scrabble tile ledge  
  • Wooden frame stand 
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Sandpaper 
  • Wood varnish (clear or colored) 
  • Paintbrush 


  • Before anything else, palm sand your pieces of wood with medium sandpaper until all bits of former finish are removed and everything is uniform-looking. 
  • Start by heating up your glue glun, then measure where you want to place your stand and ledge depending on the size of your gadget. Glue both pieces down and let dry.
  • Once you're ready to stain your stand, take your paint brush and coat it in one even layer of varnish. Leave overnight to dry. 

RL Tip: For those who want a more vintage-inspired finished product, you may consider aging your wood instead with vinegar and steel wool. Click here for a step-by-step guide
