I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

Geek Extraordinaire. Yeh, I said it.

30" Cinema Display Stand

I’m tired of the clutter on my desk. None of my peripherals seem to have a home. It’s all just kind of lying under the MacBook and Display.

It’s time to build...

I started out with a concept in Google SketchUp.

I picked up some supplies from Home Depot: 2 boards @ 36x12 and 1 smaller board cut into 4 x 2.5” strips, and some screws.
Total cost: $24.00

I marked up the boards, drilled holes, and screwed them together. It was that easy!

Done.

I covered the bottom holes with those furniture feet cushiony things.

I then cut a dowel into little slivers and painted them white. I used those to fill the top holes. I sparkled and painted them after I took the shot, so it came out a little nicer than what you see here.
