Question Square Tablet Register

So guys....

How hard would it be to get a cut list, and/or plan design for this? Again, I'm looking at DIY in this, and coming up empty-handed. Every search sucks me into Pintrest which is getting on my very last nerve, because none is the original, so I have to scroll for what seems like hours before I find out the obvious: "No plan, just buy from us" or "Not Available" *UGH**************

Looks like it would hold the standard money tray; I also found one that was a little smaller, where the bills stood up, rather than laying down, which I wouldn't object to, either. (Add another project to the list of things I need done)

An old issue of the Lee Valley & Veritas “Woodworking Newsletter, July 2012, vol 6, pages 1-6, has an adjustable laptop stand complete with build details that might help. It may be overkill but the ideas might be useful. I doubt that the original is available so if you want I can fax a copy or email it as a pdf.

As an alternative you might check my post “something simple” on 16 January 2019. While not designed for a laptop, I don’t see my reason why ithat platform wouldn’t work and could be easily mounted on your cash drawer box. I can send you the dimensions for that if it will help.

No doubt others will be along shortly with cad versions that will be of assistance as well.

Cheers
Jon

The cash drawer inserts start at around $20.

yup, inserts I found. I'm loookin' to make the wood drawer, and the swivel stand to hold the tablet, since credit sales require signatures. But thanks for the extra link; ya' never know.

Start with the drawer insert, Barb. Size the wooden drawer to accept that fit, then design and build the drawer box round the finished drawer size. The tablet stand is a piece of cake once you've built the drawer box. Forget about fully dimensioned plans from elsewhere, just design your own to your requirements.

I would break it down into little bites.

Make a drawer box just wide enough to hold your tray, but a few inches longer so you can pull it out without the drawer falling down.

Make a box to contain your drawer.

Make the Ipad holder (I wouldn't worry about the slide in parts, I would just make a lip all the way around the edge to keep the Ipad in place, and use a piece of shelf liner to keep it from sliding around

Then I would mock up the pivot mechanism and fiddle with it until it works. Screw in from the inside of the drawer box for strength. Use a carriage bolt and wing nut to put a little drag on the hinge so it doesn't flop too freely.

Definitely needs to be a custom build


If you want to go crazy, forget the pivot hinge and use a lazy susan bearing....

Hi Barb. Been looking for cash drawer plans, and every time the link hooks up to Ted's. Hate that.

Closest I found to plans is Hardwood Cash Box at Instructables. But only one place for bills, and one for coins. Does have measurements. Be easy enough to make it to hold more.

But I make my own cut lists, if I need one, which is reasonably often. Amazing how much wood you can save by doing that. Usually takes me a few times to get where I am making maximum use of my wood, but no biggie really.

Here's a few laptop/ipad holders. I don't see any need for plans for these really. Not plans as such anyway, just sketch out what you want - that's how I usually do it. Got a picture of a cash drawer too, which I don't think would be a biggie to make without plans either. At least I wouldn't need actual plans, just the measurements I wanted. Best I can come up with.

Theo, I can always count on you to go way off into left field from what I've posted. What on God's Green Earth am I going to do with little men who hold up a PHONE? Do they even resemble a cash register? rofl you kill me! I've searched around the net and gone cross-eyed looking at different ideas; I've found what I would like, and posted pictures. I don't need ideas on styles, I've found mine. I need plans.
