Got an old PS2 controller? Make It Into a Ipod Nano Stand!

It's quite self explantory, thats why theres not many instructions.

This is just something that took me one evening, but it looks quite good.

Im not gunna pay for a new ipod for you if you hurt it while doing this.

Sorry For The Bad Quality Pictures, Did't Realize They Where Bad Till I Looked At Them On My PC!

Mark where you need to make the hole. Then use something to cut through it! I used a soldering iron, then I sanded it down with a File l. I also put a bit of masking tape in the corners because it was making my ipod all mucky.

That hole is really messy. You should buy a dremel.
