How to Make a Small Folding Picture Frame

February 19, 2014


My dad recently asked me if I could build him a little stand to hold his iPhone up when he watches Netflix in bed. Immediately I thought of this simple design in my head. All I did was cut a small angled slot in a piece of maple and kept testing the phone until it had a snug fit. After I had the slot cut to the correct thickness, I cut the piece of maple to its final size and rounded over the top side with my router. I finished off this project with some spray lacquer and I think it came out great. This is a simple project to make, but it works well and would be a great project to sell at craft shows!
