    So I've been using a square piece of mdf as my monitor stand for quite a while and after seeing a site where the dude integrated an ipod dock for his nano into his desk, I decided to finally do the same for my monitor stand (and to clean it up).

    The original monitor stand in its old environment:

    Now, for the new and improved monitor stand with ipod dock.

    I wanted to cut down the harsh squared off-ness of the original stand, so I rounded it off and painted it black (also had to move the hole for the peg that holds it up):

    Final product in all it's ipod'd and murdered out glory:

    My work laptop still slides underneath without issue, of course since I can't round it off to the same curve as the stand, it does jut out of the side that used to be squared off (if that makes sense).

    It was a fun and quick 2 hour project (most of it was sanding/painting). Would have gone a lot faster if it woulda been a bit warmer, but I'll take it.

    Anyway, I'd be happy to answer any questions or comments if you have 'em.

    Enjoy!

    nice work! although it would annoy me that the screen and the ipod are not parallel... but that's just me
