Tablet Stands Made from Decommissioned Railroad Steel



Rail Slice tablet stand and Rail artifact standGriffin Technology has teamed up with Rail Yard Studios to create some very unique tablet stands. These one-of-a-kind stands are made from decommissioned railroad steel. This could be the perfect gift for the train aficionado in your life.

Rail Yard Studios makes custom furniture from historic century-old railroad steel and hardwood timbers. Now, they are using their skill to turn railroad steel into stands for both mini and full sized tablets. The stands are fashioned from reclaimed rail stock that was installed on the original Louisville and Nashville Railroad between 1906 and 1908. Each stand can hold a tablet in both landscape and portrait orientation.

The Rail Slice Tablet Stand is made from a piece of decommissioned rail. It has a milled cavity that can accommodate a charging cable and allow the tablet’s speakers to project sound without obstruction. The Rail Artifact Stand is made from two antique railroad spikes with a tie plate that was used to hold the railroad together. Each style can be purchased for $129.99.

The forged steel may scratch the finishes of tablets, and the use of a case is recommended. To help with that, every Rail Yard Studios stand that is purchased from Griffin’s website will be accompanied with a complimentary Griffin tablet case of the buyer’s choice.
