    Yesterday I put up all my recent Lego creations, and some people liked them so I decided to maybe put up some tutorials on how to make them. This one is for the Lego iPod Touch Holder/Wheel. I tried to make this as simple as possible so you almost can't screw up.

    Now the whole thing uses less than 30 easy to find pieces. The tutorial will also be in two sections, one for the back and the other for the handles. If you have any questions just ask.

    Part One: The Back

    Here are the pieces you will need. The picture should be self explanatory so I don't need to name the pieces.

    First you will need to take the 4x10 and the 4x8 pieces and put them together.

    Next you will take the other 4x10 and use it to bridge the two together. Make sure it is centered.

    Then you will take the the 2x6 blue piece, 2x4 black piece, and the circle blue piece and stack them like in the picture.

    Now you will need to use the two 1x3 black pieces and the two curved pieces and apply them as you see in the picture.

    Part Two: The Handles
    NOTE! You will need all of these pieces times two. You will also need to do all of these steps twice so you have two handles.

    Gather up these pieces x 2 as you will need to make two handles.

    The first thing you will need to do is to take the 1x2 black piece, the 2x2 black pieces x 2, and the piece that drapes over and put them as you see in the picture.

    Now take the 2x4 blue piece and put it on top of those to hold them in place.

    Turn it over on its side and attach the blue 1x2 pieces onto the ends of the curved piece.

    Remember! You have to do all the above TWICE!

    And lastly attach the back and the handles together via the pieces that drape over.

    Congratulations you just made a Lego iPod Touch Holder/Wheel in 10 easy steps! Now I made this so it fits an iPod Touch that has a silicon case firmly so an iPod without a case will probably not fit as well. If you have any questions just ask.

    Haha, yup.
    And I think it's crazy paying $30+ for simple iDevice docks so I just make my own. They aren't as good as the official ones but they do the job and save money.

    What about an iPad stand tutorial? That would be of better use to me. :/

    I'm actually working on a different iPad stand that would hopefully be easier to make and have less steps. Because it would take a long, long time for me to make a guide to the iPad stand. If I have time I'll make a tutorial for it for ya.

    Yup, take a look at the thread where I first showed it (link in my sig). There's also a video of my brother playing on it.

    Thanks! And I made an exact replica of your iPhone stand. Well, aside from the colors, at least.

    Mind uploading pics? Because if it's that easy to replicate then I won't need to put up a tutorial for it.

    When I say exact replica, I mean up the the extent that I ran out of exact pieces with holes in them. Otherwise, here they are:
