DIY: Kitchen iPad Holder

The other day, I came across a DIY for a tablet holder on Pinterest, and I immediately set out to make it. Like any good chef-in-training in the digital age, I rely on my iPad for recipes, chopping tips, and to Google quick swaps when I realize I have none of the ingredients I need and the oven is already on. So I set out to make my own and I have to say, this is DEFINITELY one of my better ones, guys.

Here’s my inspiration:


Here’s my final product:

6 - iPad in Useedited

Right?! Okay so here’s how I made it.


Wooden Cutting Board
Curved Molding – Cut to width of board
Super Glue
White Paint


I bought approximately 8 feet of this so the man at the hardware store could cut it down to 10 inches. 

1 - Supplies

3 - Marked Up

To me, how the iPad looked while on the holder was most important, so I picked the perfect iPad reading height and marked the dowel positioning from there. 

2 - Glued

I used super glue because I trust it more than wood glue. 

4 - painted


5 - final

Look how horrible my hair looks in that reflection. It looks actually so much better IRL. 

I still need a support for the back. My inspiration used a long building block for support. I think I may grab a wooden plate easel for it and paint it white to match. In the meantime, I’ll keep up propped up and displaying my next recipe!

  1. CASE! This came out so good–I’m seriously impressed. I might have to sweet talk you into making me one–I try to use that weird folding contraption of my iPad cover, but it never really works. Boo!
