Many musicians now use iPads as lyric sheets/chord charts.  Commercial holders, like the iKlip, can cost $30 and up.  I made this one for $5.

I want to give credit to replayerreb whose iPad holder for use while tent camping was the inspiration for this design.

Step 1: Materials needed

3/4" PVC pipe--I bought two 2-foot sections for $1.25 apiece
3/4" 90 degree elbows-four of them
one 3/4" Tee

Cut the following lengths:

two 12 inch  These are the side pieces
one 5 1/2  inch  This is the top (or bottom) piece
one 6 inch  This is the mic stand support piece
two 2 inch These hook into the tee at the bottom (or top)

Cut slots in the 12 inch pieces that are 9 3/4 inches long by 1/2 inch wide.  This is where the iPad rests.
