    Hey all, here's a swing-arm I made for watching movies while laying in bed. Made it out of 2"x2" square wood, using an extra cover/stand for an Otterbox Defender case that my iPad snaps into. Charger is attached on the backside of the mount.

    Believe it or not, the original idea was my girlfriend's. Her idea was to use and arm from a desk lamp...I told ger it wouldnt support the weight and I came up with this.

    That would support a full blown TV!

    Is that box section steel?
