    I'd like to give it a go.
    I'm wondering what materials I should use?
    wood preferably, because it will be hard for me to work metal, unless im just bending. I only have access to saws hammers nails and glue.

    Buy a document stand at any office supply store, etc... Works fine for an iPad in doc or landscape.

    if you look through this thread you will find a few people have made there own stuff at times, i have 2 on here, wood, and an acrylic one. All depends on your skills and what sort of thing you have in mind. good luck.

    Depends on what you need. I find that a paperweight or banana under the case does me fine sometimes, just improvising what's available.

    I am using a frame holder from Target. It is just painted black wood, but it looks classy on my desk and it was only $4.99. It works great.

    Made one for myself out of Meccano. To every point of contact to iPad and table I glued rubber pieces so there is no sliding and scratching.
    Pros: Solid construction, lightweight, angle can be easily adjusted.
    Cons: Can't be folded or modified without screw driver.

    Good work. Don't you fear scratching your iPad?
