Everyone in my family has a smart phone and some kind of tablet so I had been kicking around
an idea of upgrading my first phone stand that I made 3 years ago to make it foldable and more portable . http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30644

A week ago Luv2learn posts a folding roubo hinge trivet http://lumberjocks.com/projects/79906
And there it was the hinge I was looking for, so here is my upgraded folding smart phone stand.

Small folding smart phone stand plus a medium size stand that will fit 7” tablets and kindles. I also have made a larger size for bigger tablets.

1st pic is of the phone stand made with some leftover curly ash let over from my picture frame project
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/47211
was able to make 5 from this wood.
4th pic shows medium sized and made from spalted beech.
Last pic shows size difference between the small and medium with medium stand made from maple.

That is pretty darn cool and would make a great gift. I like it can be folded up and put away when not being used…good job

Doug, those are so cool looking. What a unique spin on the Roubo style joinery. My only concern for you now is that once these get out it will force you into the smart phone/tablet stand business :).

ASM Folding up and ease of moving from desk to counter to nightstand was my main thoughts on making it a hinge style and it works better than I thought.

I am working out a design to use for those old things,...cookbooks on the counter.

Someone mention giving them away as gifts!
here’s a few in curly ash, ash,, maple, Q maple, cherry, oak and spalted beech all left-over scraps from my woodpile projects.

Projects with this style hinge are a great way to use up those small thin scraps you just can’t seem to throw-out.

What a great idea. I’ve been looking at “charging stations” but these are overkill cause I only need something for my phone. I’m going to pretty much steal this idea!

These really are great. My wife is after a collapsible recipe book stand, this could be just the ticket.
