I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

Apple Remote Stand

I was tired of looking at my $30 remote lying belly up on my desk like a dead Opossum. I needed to build a remote stand.

I started with an idea using Google SketchUp.

I picked up some strips of bass wood from the local hobby shop.

Two strips, one thicker than the other. Thick for the top, thin for the bottom.

Marked it up: 2” long, with a rectangle centered (1-1/4 x 5/8th).

Dremeled/sanded/cut/drilled out an oval shaped hole that will fit the Apple remote.

It fist the remote like a glove.

Here’s the other side.

I then cut it down to size.

I then cut the thin board to make a base. I glued it to the bottom and sanded it until the sides where flush.

One last test fit. Almost done. Just needs paint.

All done.
