Another phone stand

Needed a simple project and decided a phone stand for in our RV would be helpful rather than leaning a phone against the wall to watch YouTube videos. 

Followed similar style as prior stand but made it smaller.  Lighter wood is alder (I think) and the darker is walnut.  Finished with Odie's Oil.

Looks great BB!

Of course you two should upgrade to a tablet and leave the phone to the dogs for DogTV when out on the road 🤠
Splintergroup - thanks!
We are pretty cheap.🤷‍♀️  We don't have anything but antenna TV.  Internet is my phone Hotspot which works fine for working from home or on the road.  If we ever do upgrade to a tablet, the stand still might work (original version I made out of all walnut would as its oversized for a phone).
Nice! I think this one has better look with the thinner insert.
i dont have a smart phone nor do i want one but my question is are these useful for holding phones 

GR8 JOB 😍😎👍

I like the lull out shelf. Looks good
Steve- yes, the other one is pretty bulky.  This will work much better in the RV.

Tony- we use our stand quite often.  Better than just leaning the phone against something.

Corelz - I like that we can store it flat.  
Nicely done. I like that design. 

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Thanks Ryan - it was a quick project that I'm sure we will get a lot of use from. Win win!
Pretty cool, Barbara!!

Thanks Jim.  Not exactly high craftsmanship, but will be useful!  Plus, I got to use some pretty walnut left from another project.  
Really like the design and your choice of woods.  We don't own a cell phone but it's a great design for holding a book next to the computer when copying text or reading a how-to for a new computer program.

L/W - Thanks! The original inspiration from DIY Montreal (https://youtu.be/duP5HKs4APo) was larger so it could hold an iPad or cookbook.  I don't have an iPad (and not one to use cookbooks!) so this smaller version is perfect.
I thought about how nice it would be for a cookbook stand after I wrote my comment, especially because it stores flat.  I've got about 8 feet of bookshelf just of cookbooks/recipes, plus card files full, not to mention what are saved on my computer . . . more than I can possibly "eat" in what's left of my lifetime!

Nice stand Barb. I have an Apple I Pad, and it has a phone dohickey in it. It won't ring, or talk like a phone, but with a third phone number it acts as a third hotspot. That way when out in the sticks, and on the road we have computer access without having to squint at a phone, and try to type on those baby, make believe keys. Kinda nice, especially on older eyes. Samsung has a similar unit. When we bought we went a few generations older, as we weren't looking for all the jazz, just the capability for the cellular unit. I ended up finding my best buy at B&H Photo it was only something like $400.00 and the extra line for us is just 20 a month.
You could always set your phone to be the hot spot and use a tablet. Install a thin LCD monitor/tv on the back of a cabinet door ala Jim Jakosh and use that as the display if you want bigger.
GeorgeWest- interesting.  We may need to look at that.  Do you have unlimited on that iPad?  I could use my Hotspot with a laptop but limited on high speed data on my Hotspot.

Splintergroup- I don't have unlimited data with the HotSpot, but do on my phone.  We live out in the country so limited options (and we're cheap!!)
Most phones can act as a hub and let you connect to your phone's unlimited.
Our Hotspot data is separate from our phone.  Will have to look into that option or if there is a different way to connect.
