I was asked to help the sound system man ( not me this time, but I am the Pastor’s spouse) to make a holder for the I Pad that now controls the sound system when he sits in his pew. Let’s face it in the small church, this is how it is done. So we came up with the idea of an over the pew holder to keep from putting the I Pad down and so it could be adjusted or picked up and put back quickly. 3 pieces make the saddle and that was a glue up and test fit. Then I made the plywood desk top about the size of a sheet of paper,screwed it to the saddle, glued on the stop strip, even with super glue, and some rubber shelf paper across the width to prevent sliding. I can say I learned a lesson from my Dad in his business about products and I use it in my ” business” product ideas….he said about some product that he got that was poorly done..” why did the maker let this out of his shop ?” So you see rounded corners and all this was sanded, even that brown burn spot catches my eye since ash burns so easy on a disk sander. You are judged by your work, set your goals high. I should sneak it out if its suitable to the task and stain and polyurathane it, this is a test look.

Nice practical thing. I’m wondering now why we need a 12-foot long sound booth that takes 8 seating places out of 2 rows of balcony. (I’m sure the sound guys have an answer to that.) Nice solution!
