Step 1: Materials Needed
- CNC Machine
-V Carve Bit
Step 2: Prepping
Step 3: Planing
Step 4: Glue and Cut
Step 5: CNC
I cut the depth of the phone and pen pockets at 0.8" to give a good depth to hold the phone.
The width and length of the pocket depend on your phone and the degree of slant you want. I have galaxy s7 edge with a case that I always on it. I wanted the dock to be able to house my phone with or without the case.
Also I was thinking of Full Metal Alchemist that day.
Step 6: Sanding and Staining
First I used white spray paint for the enfgraving. I used a belt sander to sand the excess paint off and round the edges of the wood.
Then I used a dark walnut stain to color the wood being careful around the white engraving.
Then I used some wipe on polyurethane to put a layer of clear on.
Step 7: USB Charger and Aluminum Standoffs
So I used a drill bit smaller than the port and moved it around until it was press fit into the dock.
I then used aluminum Standoffs from the openbuilds part store to raise the dock to give more clearance for the cables.
I had smaller Standoffs but I wanted a taller stand. Whatever suits you.
I used 3" wood screws to secure the Standoffs from the bottom.
