This guide is a how-to on how to produce a simple, aesthetically appealing, acrylic stand for your iPod touch or iPhone. As a DIY'er, I decided to produce something not by buying, but by using something I find around the house. I am an avid aquarist, and create my own acrylic and polycarbonate filter tubes for my aquariums. Since I did not want to go out and purchase my own acrylic pieces, I just flattened out some old acrylic tubes had. I created this stand to not only take up less space than my LEGO stand, but also to make a more modernized, simplistic stand, using minimal tools. This clear stand also gives the illusion that the iPod or iPhone is floating in air.

Step 1: Materials

 To make this stand, you will need:

1 set of hands, preferably moisturized and smooth
1 stove (preferably electric for further accuracy of bends) or heat  gun
1 faucet of flowing, cool water
1 lengthy sheet of acrylic (or flattened acrylic tube(
1 saw to trim
1 piece of sandpaper to smooth rough edges
1 warm sunny day to enjoy and do something creative
How long should the sheet be and how did you go about "bending" the acrylic? By hand, tool or? Thanks for your posting, it looks really good!
Nice you could also add the charging cable and it would be awesome.<br />
