Description: I needed a cheap stand for my Novation Launchpad and looking around the Internet I’ve found nothing under 60 €.
So I went to IKEA and found a beautiful Dave waiting for me.
The process to build this stand is quite simple: instead of attaching the default Dave tabletop to the leg, screw the 25x25cm wood piece on it (you will need to cut out a little pin in the plastic and to use self-threading screws, no big deal). That’s it, you will have your Launchpad stand ready to be used!
But… wait… there’s more! What if I would like to use Dave as a table sometimes? A little hack in the hack!
* Take the default Dave top, put it on a table with the bottom upward, and lay down the wood piece in the middle of it; * Now surround the piece of wood with corner joints screwed to the Dave top (self-threading screws here also).
Now you can use Dave as you normally would (putting the default top above the wood piece), or as Launchpad stand!
