    I always find it fun to make my own iPad stands and cases, and also for my iPhones.

    and inspired by others versions I have seen, I made this stand with Palissander wood, which is a very nice rich warm wood with dark flames.
    I kept the look straight with sharp edges, covered the inside with felt, so not to damage the iPad, and lacquered it all, to give it a nice sheen.
    the iPad can stand at two angles and is supported with a brushed steel rod

    That actually looks really nice. I was expecting to see something made out of cardboard.

    Very nice. How long does it take you to complete this stand? You can start your case and stand business now!! :D

    a few asked if this is also usable with the iPad 1, Yes it can :D
    I can adjust it to fit it with both iPad versions.

    If I would add the dock connector you would not be able to put the iPad on its side !

    I, and some others, thought it looked a bit to square, so I tweaked the design a bit, and it looks more pleasing now :D
