The Coburns stand for iPad tablets is noted for being simple and sweet, while providing multiple horizontal and vertical display angles at a moment’s notice. Plus, the tablet accessory doubles as a key chain or carabiner. How nifty is that? The built-in magnets – used only when storing the 2 sticks – snap together like magic, and stay attached quite securely. In addition, the beveled edges and high-density wood should ensure this tablet stand will last.

Find the right type of wood, go to a local woodworking shop who know what they are doing and request they make a small, beautiful, and adjustable stand that will easily go everywhere with your iPad tablet. If you did it right, you ended up with something like the Coburns, by US-based Fine Grain.

FineGrain is basically two friends who got funded many times over on Kickstarter, and they represent the mountainous state of Utah. They found not one but two kinds of hardwood, one of them locally sourced to offer the option of a lighter toned finish.

It’s hard to resist the ingenuity in finding the simplest solution possible, so T2C kicked in a contribution to the campaign. We love the natural felt loop accessory, which also doubles as a keychain when not using the wooden supports to prop your iPad tablet.

Simple to use and easy to stow, these beveled-edged tough little blocks are just the coolest thing around. They’re not compatible with any snap-on covers, so you will have to keep your tablet in a sleeve when on the go.


  • Multiple viewing angles in both formats
  • Inexpensive
  • Great portability

            Overall: GREAT

            We love this accessory and are glad to have contributed to its Kickstarter campaign. The Couburn’s single purpose in life is to act as support for various iPads in multiple stand modes, and this simplicity is also present in its refined shape and fine material. This makes it the best case scanario for any out-of-the-box Apple tablet that wants to stand up right.
