DIY Copper Pipe iPad Holder
Bring a touch of elegance to your tech life with this stunning—and simple—copper pipe iPad stand.
A trip to the hardware store found Laurel from A Bubbly Life face-to-face with some very promising copper pipe fittings. After a brief DIY project, she had her own copper iPad stand to make cooking from recipes a snap. Read on for a simply brilliant tutorial suitable for makers of any skill level.
MATERIALS & TOOLS– 1/2″ copper tubing
– Tubing cutter
– (2) 90degree elbows
– (2) Street elbows
– (2) Tees
– (4) Pipe caps
Make your cuts (measurements: (1) 8-inch; (2) 4-inch; (2) 6-inch; (2) 1-inch). My measurements are based on the 3rd generation iPad but I checked the specs on the iPads and it would work with any iPad.
Glue the 8-inch and 6-inch pieces to the street elbows. Glue the tees to the bottom of the 6-inch pieces.
Glue the 4-inch and 1-inch pieces to the tee. Glue the street elbows to the end of the 4 inch pieces.
Glue pipe caps to each exposed pipe.
