Made this Accessory Holder as a Christmas gift for a male cousin to hold his phone, watch, ring, glasses, and wallet. Comes apart for easy movement. I like the two-tone of the stains and the simplicity of the holder. Router kept giving a bit of kickback, biting into the wood where it was unwanted, hence the messy cord line, but as with most of my projects, I don’t mind the mistakes that make them more “unique”. Artistic choice? : ) Also difficult was figuring out the angle to cut the opening slot for the side piece. It needed to be angled to set the side piece just how I wanted it. Eventually decided on 10 degrees.
The idea for this holder was based on this: http://cleverwoodprojects.org/woodworking-projects-for-beginners-six-easy-project-ideas/

Don’t read the site- it was clearly written by a bot or ESL individual, because it’s mostly gibberish. Just used the image for inspiration.

I freehanded a design that then was drawn on the wood and had plenty of fittings and mockup pieces made throughout to figure out how things would fit. Fun challenge, great gift.

Very nice Brittany. I had a similar valet in mind to hold my Apple watch with charger and phone. I was waiting for wireless charging to come to the iPhone… It’s here now so thanks for the reminder!

Thanks! It was fun to build and the receiver was thrilled! (once he figured out how it worked, of course) : )

Very nice! I like the nook for the phone. I built something similar for my daughter for Christmas. It’s like yours, but also has slots on the bottom for hanging extra Apple watch bands.

Have your say...
