Default Need structural advice - tab and slot book stand

I'm making a tab and slot book stand as a gift for a friend who is starting seminary. It needs to be able to hold a large study bible without falling over. Right now, its kind of back heavy, and tips over when you put a heavy book on it. Any suggestions on modifications that could keep it upright?

It appears you are attempting to embed a picture or two. Try this instead as those are not showing up.

Just a tip...
I've had several folks tell me they copy and paste this tip into word so they can print it out and keep it by their computer for later reference.

1st open another browser window (or print out these instructions) and open this thread in it so you can read and follow this guideline..

Here is the preferred way to post photos. This method will apply a thumbnail so that messages load faster, keeping those who are still on dial up in mind.

If it is a new thread scroll down below the message box to additional options and look for manage attachments,Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.

If you are uploading a picture to an existing thread (conversation)
Click on the Go Advanced button under the reply box, Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.
Good luck

To re-size your pics if needed there is an awesome freebie out there called irfanview. Easy and free. I've used it for years. irfanview

I was trying to be lazy and drag-and-drop from my email. Here are the pictures.

You could add a leg on the back. You could move the lower piece in the first pic so there is less protruding in the front giving it more support in the rear.

I'd increase the angle between the two boards so that the book lays back more.

A nice gift.

Large Bibles need a lot of support and require a fairly substantive stand to hold and display them for reading. If you Google "Bible Stands" and go to the "Images" menu you will see lots of variations - it looks like there are at least a couple which might provide some ideas to help you out.

Good Luck,


Jay
