What is it? Can you tell from the first photo?
I like having my iPod handy at work and that means standing up where I can touch it without having to pick it up. So, I made a holder for my new iPod touch this week. Works great on my desk too. I had one for an older iPod but this one needed the added feature of holding the iPod both vertically and horizontally plus having access to all the controls.
This has worked great. It slides into position with a slightly snug fit into grooves routed in the edges. It also has a ball bearing seated on a tiny piece of rubber in the back piece that detents into small dents drilled into the back of the front piece with a rounded router bit in my drill press. I then assembled it and ran it back and forth a few times to dent the walnut and then I put thin super glue in the track I created and into the detent holes to make them more durable. Works fine so far.
Well, thanks for looking. I love making putzy stuff that makes life easier or more interesting.
