Homemade Car Mount for Nexus 10
Here's a homemade mount for the Nexus 10. I use mine for writing, and spend a lot of time sitting in my car as a roadside vendor, so I came up with two ways to mount my Nexus 10 depending on which side of the car is best for me to sit that day.
Here's a small gallery of pictures that pretty well explain how I made the mount.
The other item is a lap tray to hold the keyboard. I made it wide so I could sit relaxed and still have the keyboard secure in my lap.
That's an iHome Bluetooth keyboard I found at WalMart. It works fine but may be a bit too small for me. In any case, the lap tray will fit a larger keyboard if I can find one.
Everything is made from 3/16" plywood from scraps I had on hand. The lap tray is covered both sides with shelf liner for a nonslip surface.
The last picture shows my carrying case. It's another WalMart item, offered as a case for a 12" laptop, $12. Has a zippered pocket that fits the keyboard too.

Re: Homemade Car Mount for Nexus 10
I have this one:
RAM Mount Tab-Tite Large Tablet Suction Cup Mount RAM-B-166-TAB8U
It works excellent. Even works with my case on my N10. This is a very stable mount that works in portrait or landscape. I use it in my 4 wheel drive truck with of road suspension and it stays solidly mounted.
