Remote Control Holder

One of my co-workers where I work a day or two a week has a handicapped daughter. She has a hard time operating her remote control(2) that she uses. Her mother asked if I could build a little ramp holder for it to make it easier for her to operate. This(3) was not an acceptable solution, so I looked around and found a piece of Maple trim left over from a previous project(4). No way I was going to put together an ugly wedge, so I built this little holder(5). A quick coat of rattle-can lacquer, and it looks like this(6). I hope she likes it.

As always, your decency shines through. Did you put rubber feet under it to keep it from sliding?.

Good job sir!

Great job my friend.
You’ve added another good mark in your big book.

That is a splendid design too.

Thanks all. You all would have done the same thing. One thing that didn’t occur to me is to leave the IR LED visible. It was pure accidental that it was not blocked. I would have been embarassed.
