I started making these iPad stands to fill a personal need for a functional, low profile, stand for my desk. My two requirements were that it had to work well to support the iPad in both landscape or portrait modes, and it had to look nice which to me meant using wood!
They were an instant hit at home, the wife and both of my daughters use them constantly, I’ve also given a few to friends, family and co-workers.
The first batch was made in spruce, mainly because I had some lumber hanging around from a remodel of my home and I do get a kick out of repurposing wood.
With my second run (also spruce) I’ve been experimenting with different types of finishes and hope to find some really cool colors while still keeping that “zen” look and feel.
Looking forward I think I’d like to try a few different types of wood, possibly some exotics, any suggestions, or comments are always welcome.
