You might have seen the $5 iPad Dock (or €5 iPad Stand) on the internet (Lifehacking, Wired, TUAW, CrunchGear) and thought 'I can do that'. And of course, why not? I'll save you the trouble of finding out exactly how to make it, by giving you the exact instructions to make your own wooden iPad Stand.

After three days of testing we can confirm the wood doesn’t scratch the iPad, the iPad doesn’t fall over when you tap the screen and you can use it horizontally while charging :)

- Piece of nice wood (130 x 80 x 24 mm or 5.1 x 3.1 x 0.9 inch if you prefer)

Tools needed:
- Saw
- Drill
- Large diameter drill bit (we use 19mm)
- Sandpaper

Step 1: Make a 130 x 80 x 24 mm wooden block

Or 5.1 x 3.1 x 0.9 inch if you prefer
