How to Make a Retro TV Phone Stand

February 2, 2016


This week I’m making a phone stand that converts your everyday cell phone into a cool looking retro tv. For this project, I used 1/4″ and 3/4″ birch plywood and my CNC machine to carve out the pieces. Don’t worry if you don’t have a CNC machine though, I have created a cutting template that gives you everything you need to make your own by hand. I started by cutting out the front and back pieces on my CNC with my 1/4″ thick plywood. Next, I needed to cut out the center slot that holds the phone. For that I used the 3/4″ plywood. Now it’s just a matter of gluing all my front and back pieces to my middle piece. I finished it off with a few coats of wipe-on poly and now I’m ready to enjoy my new retro tv!  I couldn’t be any happier with the way this project turned out!
