Looking for a way to use your iPad in the kitchen successfully. Some people buy an Kitchen iPad mount (see my Babble post – 7 Handy iPad Kitchen Stands) and then there are people who take it one step further.
I would like to pause and say to my husband, please do not attempt this at our home. While I think this is really cool, we don’t have any spare cabinets and I REALLY love our kitchen, let’s just buy an iPad mount.
This guy made hit kitchen cabinet his iPad holder.

Sound is output to aux input [UPDATED - NOW VIA AIRPLAY] of mini stereo (until I replace that with powered speakers).
The iPad is easily removeable (without unscrewing [See 3.40 on video] ) – the wooden slat holding it in place is just tight enough to hold it snug.
No power supply fitted yet (because battery power very good) but that is coming soon – just need to get the dremel out again. [UPDATE: I have since glued some felt to the back of the cabinet door and back of the wooden slat to prevent scratches.]
Some people have commented about the hole left in the cabinet when I remove the iPad, I have an 8×10 photo (NOT of an iPad!) glued to a piece of wood that slots into the holder on the back of the cabinet door.I bought a replacement door (which happened to be on sale) before cutting the original, in case it all went pear shaped (no pun intended!), so at any time I can abandon the idea and restore the kitchen back to the way it was.Future developments
While I think this is really cool, please make sure you have a spare cabinet door – just in case.
