appmarsh Giveaway: Win a Wood iMac Stand or Shelf From Understands

For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with Understands to offer appmarsh readers a chance to win a high-quality iMac stand or shelf made from wood.

Understands makes a selection of stands, shelves, and drawers that are designed to accompany the iMac, though there’s potential for these to also work with other computer monitors. Each stand is made entirely from wood, with different options like ash, walnut, and cherry available.


There are many one-of-a-kind stands and shelves available with unique designs, live edges, bark accents, and other features. Prices range from $35 for the smallest shelves to $399 for the largest configuration with multiple drawers, but most are priced around $100 to $150. There are six main configurations, outlined below.

Evo

The Evo, priced at $99 to $129, features an iMac undermount, so it adds storage to the area above your iMac‘s stand while also raising it to an optimal viewing height. It is available with or without a drawer, and there’s space to store the Apple Magic Keyboard underneath it. At the back, there are cutouts for cords, which allow them to be routed into the drawer for storing and charging devices like iPhones and other peripherals.

Planet

Priced at $300, the Planet features a total of three cork-lined drawers for holding accessories and peripherals, with one additional hidden drawer and built-in hand-cut dovetail joinery. The Planet, made from ash harvested sustainably in Illinois, is also an undermount design that fits over the iMac‘s stand with rear-facing cutouts for managing cables.

Aspire

Priced at $99, the single-drawer Aspire also features an undermount to raise the iMac up just a bit to put it at an ideal viewing angle, and built-in cable management lets you charge your devices like iPhones and iPads without messy cables everywhere.

Bolt

Made from birch or walnut, the Bolt comes in multiple sizes and can hold a single monitor/iMac or multiples. The Bolt stands are 9 inches deep and have customizable height options ranging from three to five inches. Prices range from $49 for a nine-inch single iMac version to $119 for a 42-inch model.

Butler

The Butler is a little shelf that’s designed to fit on the back of the iMac where it can hold storage devices and other knick knacks. It’s an ideal place to put your SSDs and hard drives because it keeps cables out of the way. There are multiple wood options for the Butler, along with 15 and 20-inch size configurations. The Butler is priced from $59 to $79.

The Ray

Priced at $189, the Ray is another iMac stand with an undermount design that raises the iMac up to an ideal viewing height. It features a pen tray, a large cork-lined main drawer big enough to hold an iPad, two secret compartments for storing accessories, and space to put the Apple Magic Keyboard. As with other Understands options, there’s built-in cable management with felt cable grips so you can hide your cords away.
