    I was looking around for a decent iPad stand. I decided to make it myself. It seems to do the trick. It cost me less then $3.

    as a professional wood worker,, that looks like a piece of crap, and this is the iphone forum so it looks even worse here then it would in the ipad forum

    Not sure why so much hate from that wood-guy!

    Cheap ☑
    Simple ☑
    Functional ☑

    Looks fine to me!

    If it meets your needs (which it looks like it does) then don't listen to everyone else and be happy with your iPad stand that u have for under $3 :)

    Might have looked better in black or silver and I would have put some soft rubber on the feet and supports to prevent damage to the iPad although its very unlikely that it would get damaged but what do I know you might have a natural wood coloured desk and the iPad stand matches in :)

    looks good to me. It gives me an idea to let my husband build me something for my iphone. No ipad as of yet. :(

    Looks good. But you should try the Apple iPad stand...

    Like, I said. I am not professional. This only took me 10 - 15 min and less then $3. I am okay with it. I shared this and hoping someone will come up with a better and cheap DIY stand.

    nice one, I just bought one of these for $9 and chopped off the protruding middle piece until I can justify spending $60+ for a skadoosh..so far I have not been able to. its fully adjustable from 0 degrees to 90 degrees, and I like how it slightly elevates the iPad instead of having it sit at desk level.
