During this little lull in the action (while I’m building a big sweet project I can’t tell you about yet!) I looked around at a few things I’ve built before joining LJ. These little iPad stands are about the simplest things to build. They tip back at about 30 degrees from vertical. I cut the slot on the table saw, just moving the fence back until the device fit the stand properly. I had some rubber feet that fit into a 3/8 hole. Just had to make sure the front feet are back from the slot (otherwise your first stand ends up in the scrap bin. DOH!) The one in the first picture is the one I keep on my desk. It’s 5.5” deep, so its very solid. The little black thing on the front right is a mini stylus that came in an accessory kit I bought. It’s made to fit in the dock connector, but I cut a slot in the stand for it to sit in and keep handy.
Before anyone asks, I better tell you about the skin on the iPad. I bought a wrap from SlickWraps. It is a border around the front and a full cover for the back. I think this was the mahogany wrap. It doesn’t affect the fit of the leather case I use when I’m out and about and makes it way easier to hold, not so slippery.
