Sleek and Stylish Ipad(and More) Stand





Introduction: Sleek and Stylish Ipad(and More) Stand

This is a nice alternative to all the big and clumsy stands for ipad.

It took me less than 10 minutes and 2 tools to make this sleek stand

What you need:
x An Ipad
x 3 mm thick Plexiglas
x A jigsaw
x A hot air gun

Step 1: Step 1

Get your Ipad, first things first, you have to have an Ipad to build an Ipad stand

Step 2: Step 2 - the Material

1. Buy some 3 mm thick Plexiglas (acrylic) or you can buy thicker, it must be 3 mm or more to have the stability to hold your Ipad.

2. Cut out a piece of the glass, I chose 150 mm X 60 mm

3. I masked the piece to prevent it from being scratched from the jigsaw

Step 3: Step 3 - Warm It Up!

When you have your piece of glass you just have to warm it up with your hot air gun till the glass get soft and bendy.

1. Warm your glas till it has soften a little
2. bend your pice to a desired angle
3. hold it
4. let it go when it is cooled down
5. repeat till you get your desired look

Step 4: Step 4 - Unwrapping

Just unwrap the plexiglas and your almost finished...

Step 5: Step 5 - Put Your Ipad in the Stand

Now that your finished, just put your Ipad in the stand!

Step 6: BONUS: You Can Use It With Your Non-Apple Product

For those that just hate Apple or don't have the ability (money) to buy an Ipad can enjoy this stand with non-Apple products.

And you can use it in portrait AND landscape mode ;)

    I'm a PC but I have two iPads because they are a good product. Anyway good tut.

    Why is it that every post with an apple product has people arguing about which company is better? Apple lovers: not everyone likes their products, believe it or not. Microsoft lovers: you don't need to bring up this topic ever time you see someone with an apple product. EVERY ONE JUST STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THE OTHER COMPANY. YOU ARE NOT BEING FORCED TO USE THEIR STUFF.

    i absolutly despise the ipad. but i love how you've used perspex! reminds me of high school fabrication classes lol. i wish there was more perspex type instructables on here as its a great building material and if you look hard enough easy to find and recycle. great idea very simple and your results look very astheticly pleasing and well made

     God i just hate pc people like you. Why do you have to DESPISE the ipad?
    I mean c'mon, its just a product. Dam.

    I like apple, but i don't hate pc, its just another company. WHY must you hate the ipad? i mean be mature. Im fricken 14 and i can.

     I  am fan of Dell computers but I love my itouch and ipod stuff, I dont mind macs but I prefer  dells, they both have great products

    Dells suck! Im not sorry for that they just suck!

     Why, cause there better and more durable than apples 

    More durable, yes. Better, heck no!

     Cheaper can do more and better, yes
