While I love my Dodocase, it doesn’t work as a stand on all surfaces. I wanted something lightweight that I could throw into my bag, but I didn’t want to have to pry the iPad out of the case all the time — the Dodo is snug.
I went prowling in Office Max to see if one of their business card holders would work. They didn’t have any I liked, but they did have some sign holders on clearance. At 2-for-1, I figured I could afford to mess with them.
I bought the 5″x7″ version of this Rolodex sign holder, although I suspect the wooden base is the same and the only difference is the plastic piece. I tossed out the plastic part and handed the base to Michael, who disappeared into the garage for a while and returned, covered in sawdust, to show me what he’d wrought: a widened groove that holds the narrow end of the Dodo.
