Custom Tradeshow iPad Pedestal

by: modgrain

Modgrain recently shipped a iPad stand to to Woodinville, WA. The buyer (LOUD Technologies Inc.) loved it so much that they contacted me about doing a custom piece…. and ultimately commissioned Modgrain to create and build a custom iPad Pedestal for their upcoming tradeshow NAMM – in Anaheim, CA.

Thanks to the good people at LOUDtech (they are very nice), It was a very efficient and simple process. A few emails, a couple discussions a a preliminary estimate and a quick design, including 3D drawings and animation (see below). Also, below are some of the process photos so far. I’ll update them as the project progresses.

This is the first project that I have been challenged with creating a “ebony” like finish (not included in this 3D animation). And, I’m happy to say that after 3 coats of water based black die mixed with India Ink and 2 coats (so far…. a couple more to come) of a ECO friendly satin topcoat, that it’s looking really nice. I can’t wait to mount the top and 4 custom, secure iPad stands. It’s going to be sweet!
