I created this iPad box to enable me to take my iPad with me when I have to visit hospital. I wanted to create a box because it will offer more protection than the standard cases. It can also be used as a stand for the iPad if I wanted to watch a movie or my favourite woodworking videos on YouTube.
It is made form Sapele and has White Oak inlay. The inside is padded with foam and covered with red Baize. The hinges are consealed hinges that are originaly used on doors but I think they work well in this application. They have to be morticed in which is some extra work but it is worth it. A simple latch on the front keeps the iPad from accidentally falling out.
During one of my iron infusions at hospital, I was asked where I had purchased the box from. Of course this brought a smile to my face and I felt proud to reply that I had made it myself. The lady complimented my craftmanship and even asked me to make one for her. I am currently making another and I am filming the proccess so I will be uploading a video in the near future.
Thanks for viewing my project I hope you liked it!
