    I imagine it's some type of plastic... where would you go get something like that? Lowes? Ikea? I assume the guy made this after cutting the parts himself from bigger plastic?

    This is a DYI I want to do and put more descriptive guide(along w/ description in english)..

    Don't know about these specific materials but www.mcmaster.com has tons of materials in a wide selection of dimensions. It's trustworthy: used it almost exclusively for my senior engineering project.

    It looks like 5mm acrylic. Should be able to get it on eBay with no problem. We have tons in work so might make one of these. Thanks for posting!

    I'm going to do mine so it holds the phone landscape. On another interesting-ish note I will be starting the manufacture of birch plywood iPad covers in work
