Here's an simple, clean e-cig holder I made at Techshop! http://www.techshop.ws
Things you need:
5mm thick plywood
250 grit sand paper
Step 1: Design and Cut
Design your files to vector cut the wood. I used Corel Draw.
Cut the wood in the laser cutter.
Separate your parts.
Step 2: Glue
I used wood glue and applied it to the piece. Then I took a coffee stir stick and spread it out. Put the pieces together and clamp it. Wipe of the excess glue with a damp rag. I put the pieces with the holes together first, then applied the base.
Step 3: Sand, Stain, Finish
I used 250 grit sand paper to lightly sand any excess glue and give the sides a worn look.
After sanding, wipe off dust. And your ready to stain.
I used Varathane, Golden Pecan wood stain. Using a rag, dip in the stain and apply in the direction of the grain.
Wipe off any excess and let dry for 2-4 hours.
Once it is dry, you can apply the clear finish. I use Wipe on Poly. Simply shake the can and apply to a rag. Wipe on the wood in the direction of the grain. I apply 2 coats.
