The Miterbox store on Etsy has a couple of hand-made wood charging stands that will work for iPad or iPad 2. The Retro TV iPad Dock (left) turns your device into the screen of a tiny, old-style TV console. The iPad slides in horizontally, leaving the docking connector free for charging while the iPad is displayed in the wood dock. The Retro TV dock is $60.00. The dock on the right has a wood support in the back to stabilize the iPad while it’s attached to the Apple charging dock. It sells for $75.00.
