My pen stand at the local market has become a request spot for many projects and phone stands became very popular. Here are a few of the many subjects people asked for. Used up a lot of wood boards that were taking
up storage space. A good money spinner when pen sales slackened off.

Very unusual projects….I guess phone stands are used by a lot of people., and a lot of them are made, and are very popular, and ipad stands, too, but I’ve never had an inclination to use one…!! Maybe I should re-think that one..!

I’m also making some phone stands currently, as gifts. Mine aren’t nearly as ornate though! Nice work.

Very smart of you to both figure out how to make sales from a new line of projects and do that using up small boards that were just taking up storage space. They look good. Nicely done!

Bob…Really great Carving. The detail brings the subject alive. EXCELLENT PROJECT!!!!

Very practical idea too to have a stand for the phone. Handy for when plugged in for charging.
I think they will sell very well.
The Dancers also were very realistic.

Wow Bob, you really went out of your way making these. I wouldn’t want to use it cause the phone would cover up the beauty. Nice carvings
