I have finished the second coffee shop project – this one I’ve had planned since before we opened!
I knew I wanted to build a stand for the iPad we use in our coffee shop as our POS (Point of Sale) Square register. I’ve spent months trolling the web for pictures of stands others have made and for the longest time didn’t find much at all.
I recently came across a version made by the guys over at TinkeringMonkey.com and knew I found what I was looking for. I wasn’t crazy about all aspects of their design, so of course I made my own little changes.
Materials used in mostly just oak-veneered plywood I had left over from other projects. So a little time, a little edge banding and a lot of excitement later, it’s in use and getting great reviews from our customers! Finish is natural with some wipe-on polyurethane to match the rest of the coffee counter.
One of our regulars actually did a little write-up about it in his Tech & Design blog, http://solidsmack.com/design/the-diy-wood-ipad-stand-that-screams-styleprevents-tablet-jabbing-violence/
