Wooden Phone Stand

  Posted on November 13, 2016   ·   1 min read   ·   # comments   ·   #woodworking 

Phone stands are something that seem a little unnecessary, but once you have one then you’ll wonder how your desk lived without one. I’m a firm believer in having a dedicated place for everything as a solution to keep things tidy, so making a phone stand for my desk at work just made sense. I started off on Google to look for existing designs I could imitate, but most fell short of not fitting my aesthetic needs.

My family moved into a new house, meaning that we finally have an actual garage instead of a measly carport. But what this really means is that I get a chance to claim space to set up an actual workshop! First project was naturally a workbench, which I put together using 2x4’s and a 3/4" MDF board for the work surface (see above). Second project was a bench stool, as shown in the following images below.

As you probably already know, I made a bamboo bike which I’m very proud of. However, what you probably don’t know is that I made some mistakes in the process. The photo above shows the result of one of these progress speedbumps, and yes, I did indeed cry the day I had to cut those tubes out. I started this project in November 2013 but failed to finish due splitting bamboo.
