Introduction: Quick Ipod Stand

Picture of Quick Ipod Stand

This is a very easy stand for you Ipod. it only costs 3 bucks. Not the prettiest thing invented but it serves its purpose.

Step 1: Get All the Stuff

There are only a few things ya need.

1.The Ipod dock that came with your Ipod.
2.A block of the green flower holder styrofoam.
3.A sharp cutting object.
4.Duct tape
5.Some kind of old card. (gift card, Itunes card, old credit card.)

Step 2: Cut the Hole

Now cut a hole that will fit the bottom of the white dock. make sure it sinks down all the way so the white top part you see is sitting on the foam. I also but tape over the bottom of the white dock so the green stuff would get all up in the USB connector. Look at the second picture for the dock in the foam.

Step 3: Tape It All Together

This green stuff makes a mess. So I covered it in white duct tape. TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS. I did mine really fast so it looks like crap. Also I taped the card onto the bottom so it wouldn't fall over.

Step 4: There Ya Go

There ya go a nice ipod holder. You can turn a nano upside down to play the music or charge it. On mine it looks like I stuck it in a big white blob of something.

This is a pretty cool instructable. I like how you used the green styrofoam for the base. I might "engineer" another way to keep the iPod from falling backwards, since I have a new generation classic. Keep up the good work! :)

easy, when you have it plugged in, go to "my computer" and it'll say creative zen mozaic, and go to that and click music and copy and paste from your music folder

Good! Basic, and does the job nicely, now I can stop worrying about it falling over all the time!

I don't get it. Why making such a cheap dock for such a expensive ipod?

sweeet_2012 (author)Esmagamus2008-06-12

wow. I couldn't have said it better

This could look pretty cool if I used scotch tape and spray painted over it. Nice instructable.

uncle_al_0 (author)2007-09-08

What you should do is take the foam and cut a cube out of it and then pour plaster in the hole and use a dremel to cut the holes for everything. then sand it down, prime it, and paint it. sound good? i thought so.
