My wife likes to watch something on her iPod before going to bed. To make it easier for her, I made this wall mount which allows her to slide the iPod out for charging.
Step 1: Prepare 4 Strips
Purchase a 3-foot corner guard from your local Lowe's (or any) hardware store. These are long, transparent pieces of plastic.
Mark and cut the corner guard into 4 pieces of equal length longer than the iPod.
Sand the ends of cut pieces.
Burn the ends slightly to make them transparent.
Step 2: Mark & Cut 2 Strips
Lay one of the pieces flat and mark it with a sharpie by dragging. Cut it.
Step 3: Glue Short Pieces to Long Pieces
Glue the cut piece to one of the uncut pieces so that it resembles a u-channel using cyanoacrylate (crazy glue). Make sure the smaller piece is on top.
Step 4: Mark 4 Mounting Holes
In this step, cut out a square template out of paper and use it to mark corner ends with a sewing pin for drilling.
Step 5: Mount 2 Holders
Mount the bottom holder. Remember to use a level. Use the cut piece as a spacer when mounting the top piece.
