If you’re looking to save some money, consider making your own stylish stand that might even be cooler than what’s on Apple’s site.
DIY clock and iPad stand
YouthMin1 put together an Apple Watch booth and shared the results on Reddit. A user explained on the r/AppleWatch subreddit that the entire project took about an hour, while the glue and dye took 3 and 12 hours to dry, respectively.
The base was assembled from old crate boards, glued, cut and then sanded to shape. The clock stand was assembled from a dowel and used to fasten the clock. YouthMin1 then drilled out the dowel and base so that the corresponding charging cables can be placed and charged to fashionably charge the corresponding devices. The final product, which you can see in full here, looks simple and presentable, and I’m sure it will cost you a lot less than even the cheapest stand on Apple.com.
Easiest Apple Watch Stand / Charging Dock
Nitintech on YouTube describes his project as the easiest Apple stand and charging dock you can make for yourself, and after watching the video, he might be right. All you need for this project is an Apple Watch charger, a large paper clip, fabric, and a loop accessory that comes with most Apple Watches.
Apple Watch Foam Stand
For this DIY project, you will need a few items: a charging cable, floral foam, silk cloth, a stapler and staples, duct tape, and a knife. Use a knife to cut the floral foam so that your Apple Watch can rest on top of the foam. Wrap the foam in silk — use staples if necessary — and then put the watch on the charger. you did it
Kemrah on Imgur explains that you can use duct tape to prevent the foam pad from moving, as the final project is incredibly lightweight.
For a project that costs close to zero and should take about 10 minutes or so, the results are decent. Not too shabby looking.
