    My own adjustable iPad stand

    I've been looking for a case/stand for days and still haven't found something I'm willing to pay for. I already have the Apple case and I'm happy with it, except for the fact that it isn't adjustable for viewing. A little while ago I called my husband at work to ask him if he could cut a couple of triangles out of a 2x4 so I could try making my Apple case stand up like I want. In the meantime, I decided to go in the garage to see what I could find that would help me determine the dimensions I need for the triangles. I found Lots of cardboard, so I figured I could make some triangles out of it to see what would work best.

    I also found the pieces that came in the box with my iPad from Apple. And came up with an almost perfect solution.

    LOL. And it works!! Actually, I just made a couple of triangles out of cardboard and they work really well - gives me different angles out of one triangle.

    At this point I'm not looking for something pretty, I'm looking for something functional. I'll work on pretty later!!!

    I like your solution too many whiners out there complaining they can't find something to buy. Hell, do it yourself and enjoy it, good for you!

    Thank you Ghuda!!!

    Here are pictures of the triangle, which gives me two angles - the more upright one is what I was looking for.

    Maybe not the prettiest solution, but it's a start!!!
