So I managed to make a wooden cell phone holder/stand today. I busted the blade on my band saw and couldn't get the new one on. Then I was fiddling with the scroll saw blade and was having an issue with that. It wasn't a good blade day I have to say. Every day I have to say patience grasshopper. I was determined to get one done so I took out good old Jiggy, that is jigsaw, I name my tools.
I do have to make a few adjustments, like make a groove where the wire goes underneath a the end but other than that ,I am happy with it. I made it 8 1/2 " high because I have a big phone. The back piece is 6" so the angle is good. The second one will be easier. Of course I like to make my day interesting and do something I have never done so I want to give it that burn look. So that is tomorrow's test.
Ha Ha this little tree looks slanted but it's not. I saw this on Pinterest and thought I would try it. I will use different wood next time. Easy enough to make. I cut this on my new band saw and it does the curves pretty well. I did, however, break the blade on the band saw. Apparently you have to break in a new blade, who knew. All part of learning how to use all my new tools.
I made these trees for my nephew. They are easy enough but not so interesting for me to make. I am still getting used to my new tools and its a learning curve. You get to know what you want to make and what makes you happy. I have decided to try things on a smaller scale.
