Phone Stand / Picture Frame

Got to design something again today. I have to say it “I love my Glowforge.” It has opened my mind to new ideas. I know I am not great like so many of the things I have seen on this site but I love to create and see and feel it. Came up with this idea, Phone Stand (not new) but mixing it with a photo frame I hadn’t seen before. I am sure it is out there somewhere! But I made a prototype yesterday but it was like 20 pieces glued together and just wasn’t as refined as I wanted so today I create version 2 and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. There will probably be a version 3, as I am never satisfied with my designs. I am getting better every day I get to play on my GF.

So pictured is version 1 - the big glue monster, and then version 2 and changed to a living hinge.

Hope you like it.

Your design evolved quickly and to an elegant finish. I like the idea of the phone stand serving double duty.

Than you so much!

That living hinge “wave” is beautiful, and even more impressive as a structural element holding the whole thing up. Kudos!

Thank You!

The living hinge really gives your stand a modern look that goes with just about anything you put on it. Super idea.

That’s really cool!! I want to make a desktop clock using a living hinge but have no clue how to create something like that! Great job. It’s beautiful!

This is something different! I love it, the first one is really nice but the living hinge one is really beautiful. Practical and beautiful at the same time!

Nice ‘new’ application after rounding up the usual suspects.

Oh wow, the design is outstanding! Living hinge looks lovely with that cool edge on it, and I love the concept of the photo frame. Most of the phone stands I see look so forlorn when there is no phone in them, which is most of the time.
