I decided that I needed some way to hold my cell phone on my work bench so that I could see if there was a call or message but wanted it up off the work bench to keep it from being damaged by putting something on it. I came up with this adjustable arm holder. The phone is held in with a sliding hand which uses a rubber band for tension and the inside has some anti-slide material on it. The holder mounts in the bench with 3/4” dog holes.
I also made it so that I could put a different holder on it to hold a tablet. I have found a number of Youtube videos that I like to watch and use to build projects. Never did I think that I would want this much of the technology in my shop but found for me that it is useful at times.
It is made of red oak and Baltic Birch. The tightening knobs are made from red oak with a 1/4-20 nut pressed in.
