    I saw a post from instructables (I think) about how to make your own iPad stand from a block of wood. I just happened to have some oak scraps in the garage, so 15 minutes with a stable saw, some Danish Oil finish, and stick on felt strips makes this. Sorry about the grainy pics, the iPad replaced my fancy phone, so now I have this crappy LG to avoid paying a data plan.

    Very nice! Looks just like the one that is sold by another guy...can't remember the product name, but he sells square ones, round ones, mini versions.

    That oil finish gives it a great translucent effect.

    ughh, dude are you so poor that you had to make a stand out of recycled wood?:p

    and no, the finish doesnt give it any kind of "effect" other then to make it look like something that came out of the Salvation army...

    with that said, props for the effort...:D

    For oak you could give it a wash of Bichromate of Potash for a darker look or Washing Soda for a weathered look before you apply the oil.

    You must have a better Salvation Army than I have access to around here. Ours doesn't have hand made, solid oak furniture, or even scraps from such things.
