Introduction: Semi-Fancy G1 Stand

Picture of Semi-Fancy G1 Stand

A stand for your t-mobile G1, if you have one, it probably works for iPhones too, but i made it for the G1, so... i dunno.


It works well for youtube viewing and listening to music, the central strip you see is there to reflect the noise from the rear-mounted speakers forward.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

an a4 sheet of thick-ish card (corrugated cardboard will probably work too, but you'll need to cut the slits wider)
a printer
knives and stuff.

Step 2: Failures and Prototypes

here are the first few attempts i did.

Step 3: Printing and Arranging

The printed version (in the pdf) is MkIV of this stand, the rest are just cut & hope stuff sat around my desk.

print out the pdf below and stick it to your piece of card with some kind of glue. try to cover as much of the surface as possible. (if you're using nice card, try and use repositionable spray mount, as it will peel off again after)

Step 4: Cutting

cut out all the shapes, on a cutting mat, with a metal ruler, if possible (don't want you cutting your finger off)

Step 5: Assembly

Put the two slots closest the hooks together, as in the main photo.

slide the largest piece into the next set of slots from beneath

then slot the thin bar in the back 2 for added support

Step 6: Listen to Your G1 in Style!

simply place the phone in the stand and listen/watch

it's good for in the kitchen, if the bench is messy or full of knives.

Hey, how is the stand holding up? I had landed up on this page from your post at lifehacker and now again, after many months, I have landed on the page using the same route. Meanwhile, I made a stand of my own. Have a look. While I think mine would be a bit more easy to make and hold up better too but I must credit your work. If you had not made this post then I would not have got the idea that a stand for a phone is something that can be made. Up until that point I had only hoped of one day buying a stand but then...Well, thanks for showing me the way.
