New Project: iStand

Build a sturdy, multi-position iPad stand for cheap.

New Project: iStand

The iPad, wonderful as it is, often needs a stand to hold it. Sure, there are tons available, but they can be flimsy and/or expensive. Here’s one that’s cheap, sturdy, and easy to build. It’ll hold either the original iPad or the iPad 2 in many useful positions.

It’s made from ¼"-thick clear or smoked acrylic, a few scraps of nice wood, a small piece of adhesive foam, and 6 screws.
