DIY Apple iPad Stand

There will be times when you want to prop up your iPad on your desk to watch a movie, or to use it as a second screen, or to show your Twitter updates. It is times like these that you’ll need an iPad stand. However if you’re like me who refuse to be a sucker for overpriced Apple accessories, you can make one for yourself for free in under 5 minutes.

You will need the following tools and materials:

  1. A piece of cardboard the size of an A4 paper.
  2. Scissors.
  3. Ruler.
  4. Pencil.
  5. PDF template (taken from the Pizza Box iPad Stand)

You can either print out the template or draw it out yourself on the piece of cardboard. Once you have transferred the template over to the cardboard, proceed to cut out the stand.

If you cut it out properly you’ll have a piece that looks like the one shown above. Finally, you’ll need to fold along the dotted lines. Your iPad stand is now ready for use.

The stand is quite sturdy if you use a stiff cardboard. You’ll notice that I did not use the rectangular brace. It works well without it.

Now that you have a stand for your iPad, go ahead and try these Apps out:

  1. Air Display
  2. iDisplay
  3. Mobile Mouse
  4. Touch LCD (clock)
