Hello, dear readers and homemade products !
In this article Alexey, the author of the YouTube channel “Aleksey Leontev”, will tell you how he made a wooden stand for a smartphone or tablet with an unusual adjustment system screen angle.
This project is relatively easy to manufacture, and requires a small amount of turning work .
Materials necessary for home-made.
– Bog oak, hazel
– Joiner's glue, wood screws, double-sided tape
– Teak oil.
Tools used by the author.
– Three-point drills for wood
– Band saw, band saw blades < br> – Circular saw, belt sander, thickness gauge
– Chisels, reyer, meisel
– Square, compass, pencil.
So, a pair of hazel boards will serve as the material for the base and the turntable. The spherical support and stops will be made of bog oak. This combination of woods contrasts well with each other.
The hazel board is cut into two pieces using a circular saw. Then the parts are run through a thickness gauge. This is how the author aligns both surfaces.
A rectangular contour of the future base is marked on the first plate, and a circle in its center.
Without changing the radius on the compass, two more circles are marked on the second blank.
Now two discs are cut on the band saw.
Further processing of parts will be carried out by a foreman on a small lathe. If there is no such machine, then you can model and print such a stand on a 3D printer. However, in this case, the product will be plastic.
A hole is made in the centers of both discs. Double-sided tape is glued to the disk, and the workpiece is fixed on the adapter flange fixed in the lathe chuck.
The rim of the first disc is grinded strictly at an angle of 90 degrees to the surface. The diameter is brought to the marked circle.
Also the wizard reduces the thickness of the disc by grinding his. Only at the end is the additional fastening screw removed, and the central part of the surface is leveled.
The rim of the second disc grinds at a slight angle, about 70 degrees. In addition, this disc is specially made with a smaller diameter than the previous one.
The rectangular base is now attached to the machine. An annular groove for the chuck jaws is machined in it. The outer diameter of the circle is equal to the larger of the discs, and the descent has an angle of 90 degrees.
Now the flange is removed, the workpiece is turned over, and cams are fixed behind the groove.
From this side, the groove is made so that the descent is at an angle of 70 degrees, and diameter – equal to the smaller of the disks.
As a result, on each side of the base, recesses are made for your disc.
Now it's the turn for the support hemisphere. To begin with, the master fixes an oak blank and grinds it to the shape of a cylinder.
Removing the tailstock, the master forms a protrusion at the end for fixing the part in the cams.
The workpiece is unfolded and fixed in the chuck.
It remains to grind the workpiece to the shape of a hemisphere with a small margin.
A stock is needed so that the part can be cut right on the machine.
From a small block, the master carves two limiters in the form of fungi.
Next, the surface is sanded. This time the parts are too small, and the author cuts them off with a hacksaw, slightly rotating the chuck by hand.
One edge of the base is rounded off by the master by cutting off excess wood on a band saw.
The edges of the workpiece are ground on a tape machine, and the edges are slightly rounded.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2021-01/1611438049_sov-376.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Blind mounting holes are drilled in the front of the base for fungi.
Glue is added inside the holes, and both stops are inserted into place.
In the disc with a beveled edge and the bottom of the hemisphere, the master drilled pilot holes so that the hemisphere was offset from the center of the disc to the side.
Both of these parts are connected with self-tapping screws for wood.
The hemisphere with the platform is inserted into the base, and the second disk is screwed to its bottom. So the central part has the ability to rotate freely relative to the base.
As a result, by turning the support, you can easily change the distance between it and the fungi.
The smartphone or tablet can be installed both vertically and horizontally. The tilt angle adjustment range is about 35 degrees.
It remains only to saturate all surfaces of the product with teak oil. It will not only show the natural texture of the wood, but also protect it from moisture. After a few hours, the excess oil should be removed.
Here's an interesting stand turned out by the master.
For those who spend a lot of time with a laptop, I recommend this ready-made adjustable holder -bracket for a smartphone.
I thank Alexey for a master class on making a stand for smartphones and tablets with an unusual tilt adjustment system. Good mood, good health, and interesting ideas to everyone!
