Just a personal scrap bin challenge to build myself a phone holder for my desk.

I have seen ones available online and in stores and figured I could have a bit of fun with the project.

All the wood came from my off cut bins, with just cutting pieces to length to make it work.

The top mechanics operate the volume controls inside. The flappy looking thing on front pushes the home button to turn it on or return to home when already in use.

Its more novelty then function because of its sheer size, however, watching a little video while at an art show tends to make for an interesting conversation starter!

For me. making little things like this are like a gift, born of the precious offcuts that accumulate in a puzzle shop.

I would love to see what other wacky creations other have made, lol.

Have a rockin’ day folks!

You have an imagination that’s pretty much unrivaled. Not completely. Just, very rare. I’m sure there are imaginations like yours. You know. Like the guy who was the first to see an egg drop out of a chicken, or other bird, and said, “I think I’ll eat that?” I’d like to ask that guy what he was thinking. “How did that particular thing cross your mind? Why would it even occur to you to do that?”

Hey thanks guys. I really just built what I could out of the scrap bin I have, though I do have lots to choose from. I had an idea of what I wanted in my mind, of wanting to have the old console tv feel of my childhood,lol, but with a splash of my mechanical mindset.
This pic I added was a google image that gave me inspiration, I just put my spin on it.
I think oversized mechanical objects are a thing right guys??
Just wait until I do my ipad!
