Apple Remote Stand
January 13, 2007 Filed in: Projects | Remotes
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.
