In a meeting of new world and old world, one might find more similarities than differences. Simplicity and functionality led me to design the iBlock. While I still enjoy going through a classic cookbook, I find myself surfing the web for the majority of my recipes. I was tired of my iPad always falling over on its flimsy mount (which just took up even more valuable space) while scrolling through Epicurious. Then it occurred to me: why not combine my cutting board and my tablet mount? I really wanted the look to mirror that of some tablets out there, so it has a marble like finish, and the look of the dock is straight forward and consistent. Additionally, this board is reversible. The raised back serves as a stop to keep the cutting board flush against the edge of a counter when cutting. You can see the design more clearly in the profile shot. Ah, how I love something that serves a dual purpose.
Gear Patrol and Cool Hunting have also thought this butcher block is particularly rad, among others(it spread like a wildfire on a few tumblresque design blogs). Plus it caught the eye of Playboy in Argentina. Yep, it's just that sexy.
The slot is 1/2 inch wide and is about 3/4 inch deep. It holds an iPad 2 well. Do you have a Google Nexus Tablet or an iPad Air? We can customize this slot for you. Just let us know what you need in the text box provided upon purchase.
