iPad Stand Hand Carved From Reclaimed Wood

We love the combo of high tech with good old fashioned natural materials, and a recent crop of wood and bamboo iPad cases has sent us straight into green tech bliss. Our latest crush? A new line of hand-carved iPad stands by The Hardwood Shop, made out of reclaimed woods.

This line comes in “Black, White, Cherry Wood, Red Mahogony Finished and Distressed” (all except the Cherry Wood are made from reclaimed maple). Each stand is suitable for the iPad and other tablet readers and allows for multiple viewing angles. According to The Hardwood Shop, the 20° position is perfect for reading at your desk, while the 45° position is ideal for viewing recipes while cooking.

Green Diary reports that each stand features rubber feet for stability, which also works with Apple’s iPad Cover. The iPad’s ‘home’ button also remains fully accessible while the reader is fitted into the stand.

The device boasts a larger resting area than most iPad stands,  which is designed to reduce stress on the frame and touchscreen. It retails on Etsy for $20.00.
