I used a laser cutter to cut the acrylic to size, to cut the holes for mounting the Arduino and to engrave a rectangle on the base to help align the breadboard. Don't despair if you don't have access to a laser cutter: you could use a saw to cut the acrylic and a drill press to drill the holes.
There are two versions of the stands: one for the Arduino Duemilanove and Diecimila and one for the Arduino Uno.
The photos show two views of an Uno stand made out of clear acrylic and a Duemilanova stand made out of blue acrylic
I made this at TechShop in Menlo Park.
Step 1: Parts
- One 1/4" acrylic sheet (color of your choice) at least 4.5" x 6.5" (the stand when cut out is 3.8" x 5.7")
- Four 19mm vinyl bumpers (available at any hardware store)
- One mini breadboard (approx 3.3" x 2.2") (Radio Shack 276-003 or Jameco #20601 or similar)
- Three 1/4" #6 nylon spacers
- One M2 x 20 machine screw
- One M2 hex nut
- One M2 washer
- Two M3 x 20 machine screws (you can substitute #4-40 x 3/4" machine screws)
- Two M3 hex nuts (or #4-40 hex nut if you use the the #4-40 screw)
- Two M3 or M4 washers (or #4-40 washer if you use the #4-40 screw)
- Three or four 1/4" #6 nylon spacers
- Three or four M3 x 20 machine screws (you can substitute #4-40 x 3/4" machine screws)
- Three or four M3 hex nuts (or #4-40 hex nut if you use the the #4-40 screw)
- Three or four M3 or M4 washers (or #4-40 washer if you use the #4-40 screw)
