    Actually, I wanna make a wall mount like this:(:
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-diy/3935-ipad-wall-mount.html
    But there's still high of charge around $130 bucks.
    So mine is not so nice but cheap one though:
    + The LCD wall arm ( 7" to 11") could be about $15 bucks to less than $20
    ... + The iPad cover is only for $10.
    + Cable tie: $1.


    Total Cost : $30
    All materials that u can find on eBay. :D:D


    ( P/s: don't comment anything about my room, cz I rent it so can't change the feminist wall color =)) )

    Can you tilt that to an angle to face you when you lie down ? It would be great if that can be done.

    I actually like this idea, never gave that a thought, I have found those small wall mounts really cheap online. Great post!

    I went to gpscity.com and purchased an Ipad Mount cradle (17.95), also a Ram-B-201U-c long length dual 1" socket arm (17.95), and two Ram B-202u 1" ball base plates (6.10 each). These items will attach to an articulating wall mount just like in the picture from the OP, this was from Amazon (19.95). Before I mount it to the wall beside my bed I will try to use u-bolts and attach wall mount to a round bar on the side of the bed (trundle bed). I recently mounted a 22" tv with the same wall mount, so I know it is jus[​IMG]t right for my i-Pad.

    Great Job

    Thanks for sharing your do-it-yourself ipad stand. It works; that is what matters.

    That looks pretty cool. Well done! Are you a fabricator of some kind?
