Electronic valet gives you a hand
In this easy one session build, we’ll create useful and unique phone charging stand that gives you a hand! Holds your phone on your desk or bedside table so you can see the screen, and charges at the same time.
Skills: cutting, gluing, drilling, carving
Completion time: one sitting
Materials: wooden hand model, phone charger, USB cable, sugru, wooden base, screws, paint, sandpaper.
Tools: drill and bits, files
This will be a quick and enjoyable building project, resulting in a useful and funny “valet” style charger, a hand that holds your phone and charges it too. You can also store keys, watch, rings, etc. Be the envy of your peers. This build will also offer a wall-mounted design variant.
