My Custom NOOKcolor stand
I just wanted to post some pics of a stand that I put together. At first I bought one from BoxWave that they had up labeled as a Bamboo NOOKcolor stand.
Since I purchased it, they have changed the image on there website, though. Originally it was pretty misleading on the dimensions of the stand. I paid $30 for this thing and really it's only meant for a cellphone. It's absolutely way too small to hold up the NOOKcolor without tipping over.
Anyway, I liked the design of it so I went out and bought a bamboo cutting board from Walmart for $20 and cut it up into a bunch of pieces. I made myself a cardboard template based on that smaller stand I originally bought. I stacked all the pieces and then glued them together. I don't have a band saw so I found this really nice guy who has a shop over at Etsy who agreed to cut it out for me. He really did an awesome job. The link to his shop is here
in case anyone wants him to make one for you.
After I got it back from being cut out I sanded it up a bit more, put several coats of Tung oil and glued on a piece of felt. I think it came out really nice in the end. I attached some pics, so let me know what you guys think
