I searched on Pinterest for crafts made out of wood, nothing really jumped out at me. I wasn’t for sure what I was going to make until one morning I propped my cell phone up onto the mirror watching a video while getting ready for work, it kept on falling over. UGH!
DIY Cell Phone Holder Tutorial
Since I only had one piece of wood and don’t have room for errors, I decided to make a dummy holder out of foam board. Just to make sure it would work for me.
The light bulb went off…..I decided to make something out of the wood to place my phone on. I searched on Pinterest for inspiration for cell phone holders. I wanted something simple because I don’t have any fancy woodworking machinery. The one I found doesn’t include gluing, nailing or any fancy machinery. That’s for me!
I measured down the board 7½ inches and marked. This will be my cut line.
I used a circular saw to cut my board on the line. I have the two pieces I need to start making the holder.
The marked area will be cut out from both boards with a jig saw. Drilling a hold to make room for my blade to be able to cut out the pieces.
On the 4½” board I drilled a hole in the center of the smaller end. Taking a drill bit large enough for the phone charger to slip through.
Clean the two boards with a damp cloth. I stained my pieces with Minwax English Chestnut and then used my Minwax finishing wax to seal the stain.
I love my holder and it’s so nice to be able to watch my videos without the phone falling over. If it needs to be charging while on the holder…no problem.
