I wanted to use up some waste scraps of maple so I decided to use the new mitre saw to make an iphone holder as I am using it to watch youtube woodworking videos a lot.I wanted it to hold my iphone and my girlfriends samsung phone or her tablet.I made a few trenching cuts across the piece then I made 30 degree angled cuts all round to make it look nicer. The trench is about 6mm deep and 8mm wide.I used a chisel to smooth the bottom of the trenching cut.I finished it to 1000grit then used a rustoleum spray clear coat to finish the holder.
This project though small was great practice,I used it for a trenching cuts and angled cuts for the first time and it was also my first time using the spray can finish.I really like the spray finish as there were no drips and it looks much more professional than the brush finish I am used too.I think it also made the grain in the maple pop real nice.It holds all the gadgets well and is a nice compact size about 2.5” square.

Cool project. I’ve got a ton of scraps from various “projects” (Screw-ups would be a much more accurate term) and being a gadget-geek who just so happens to also need some practice with his miter saw .. might be a good way to kill a few hours.
