Intro: 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)
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.
