This cookbook stand is substantial enough to hold the heaviest of cookbooks. It also is an excellent stand of an iPad or tablet. The stand is narrower than expected, which was a positive as it does not take up much space on a counter. The only negative is that the staining was not uniform and in a few places was nonexistent. May just be the one I received. Was not a deal-breaker for me, though.

I purchased this for my father, who loves to cook. When it arrived, it was clear that the packaging it came in was a bit beaten up. When I opened it to check the gift, I found that the wood comprising the stand had become detached. There was also a flaw in the wood carving portion as well, looking like a small chip out of it. I had to glue the wood of the stand together, as it was the day before Christmas Eve. It ended up staying together, and he liked it ok, but I was really disappointed that it came in such bad shape, because the carving is beautiful.

      Got this as a gift for my sister-in-law. It's beautifully carved. On a silly note, the stand was wrapped in some Indian newspaper inside the box, so now we also have a really awesome car ad from India that says... It's a carrrrrrrrrr!

        When I gave this to my mother for her birthday she said it was something that she has needed for a long time. I like that it is useful for cookbooks but also for a tablet if you are reading a recipe online. It's also nice that it folds up for easier storage when not in use.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Hand Carved Wooden Cookbook Stand:

            This was a gift for my mother's birthday. It's beautiful, BUT you can see the glue toward the bottom holding the lip on that holds up the cook books. That really disappointed me. It was too late to return it, but I was surprised at the carelessness there. Everything else we've ordered from Uncommon Goods in the past has been so great... We also got the Chakra candles, which she loves and I gave 5 stars.

                    It arrived in the time specified & in great condition. Looks beautiful on my counter & it's nice to finally have a cookbook stand. I've been looking for a stand for some time but didn't like the ones that I've seen on other sites. I'm glad I kept searching.
