DIY simple phone holder

I started to do this while back before the availability of cheap universal solutions from Asia. When I switched phones my expensive dedicated Nokia 6310 holder didn't fit my new phone. As the mount and the holes were already there I decided to make several holders myself (for and my wife). Below are some example photos and a general steps taken:

  • Measure your phone
  • Cut plexiglass in a desired shape that would hold your phone (not to obstruct buttons)
  • Make a piece of wood the size of your phone
  • Heat up the plexi and bend it around the piece of wood
  • Paint it as desired
  • Mount it as desired

I wrote about a stand that I made in one hour here. It took a bit more to do this one in my friends workshop (needed some joiner's tools to drill holes in a proper angle). The frame is made of oak wood, I used 6mmx16cm long screws and a really good glue to put it together. The aluminium trim is screwed with 6mmx6cm long screws. The laptop just slides in so it doesn't move around. I used the white platform from the old stand (hence so many holes).
