    Hi guys, got myself a new wireless keyboard and needed a quick stand for the IPAD so had some Acrylic bits around so thought id knock one up, also made a couple for the IPODS to.
    Nice and easy to bend up, used a hot air gun then just used my small sanding drum to make the opening for the button. 4mm Acrylic. Bit of sanding on the edges and there you go.
    Oh and the case my IPAD is in, is a Carbon type and it fits great feels great, best one i have found, got it of EBay for £8.00 just under and that was with postage, real happy with it.:D

    I made a similar thing with PVC.
    But I am not using anymore since I bought the apple case.

    Would that wooden stand scratch the screen?

    I was wondering that myself, but guess you could cut off some of the would that curves up and still have support for the ipad.

    Doesn't touch the screen and holds the pad in either orientation. Best of all they work with the apple case on. Mine stands beside my main monitor and acts as an overflow or a pdf/reference screen when needed.

    And yes it is a plate stand but with the high back it's easy to tap on without knocking the stand over :)

    I thought thats what it looked like, but what the hell if it works for you and your happy with it then it does the job. And its not going to have a daft price tag on it to.:D
