Introduction: IPhone 3G Wine Cork Stand
Here's a Cheap, Quick and Sturdy Stand For Your iPhone 3G!
I'm not entirely sure if this is an original design or idea but I haven't seen it anywhere. I was having a glass of wine one day while attempting to make one of those binder clip stands with no luck. I needed a stand that could be used to mount the iPhone both horizontally and vertically without any metal scratching it up. So here it is!
This is my first instructable so please bear with me..
Step 1: Materials
Here's what you need:
(2) Corks Same Size
Stickly Note Pad (Or a plain piece of paper will do)
iPhone 3G Dimensions (PDF)
Step 2: Print Out the IPhone 3G Dimensions
1. Open the iPhone 3G Dimensions pdf.
2. Print only the side dimensions of the phone
*Make sure you print the ACTUAL size of the pdf.

Step 3: Outline the Side of the IPhone
Now to get the phone to fit nice and snug I used the sticky note to outline the dimensions of the iPhone so I can cut it out and trace it on the cork in the next step.
Step 4: Find Your Viewing Angle and Cut
Now just cut out the outline, wrap it around the cork and outline the cork. I wish I knew the exact angle I used but I'm uncertain. I'd say to just position it on an angle that's comfortable for you. That's all I did.
Once you've found your desired viewing angle just outline the cork and cut away with the X-Acto knife.
Finally, take your now finished cork and line it up with another and repeat.
