This laser stand can be used for almost anything, a recipe holder, artistic art holder, picture holder, and several other things, but most importantly a laser, thanks to its flexible legs, it could be mounted on a telescope, binoculars or almost anything. It could help hold your laser still while trying to set up mirrors for a tunnel scanner or even just hold it still to gaze lovingly at your laser.

Step 1: Gathering Materials
For this project you will need:
-2 binder clips
-about 5 feet of thick wire
-a craft stick(aka popsicle stick)
The tools you will need are:
-clamp or vice grip
-hot glue gun(with glue)or any other glue that you would feel comfortable with, it needs to be a little flexible though.
Once you gather all your materials head on to step 2!
Step 2: Measuring and Cutting the Felt
First flip the metal handle things on the clips up. After that we are going to grab the felt and wrap it around the binder clip marking the place it ends with our finger. (see picture, it will make a lot more sense)
Measure the width of the clip then cut it out.
Step 3: Gluing the Felt
In this step we are going to glue the felt onto the inside of the clip.
First you have to use the clamp to hold open the clip.
Then put glue on the felt and carefully slide the felt into the clip tryinh not to touch it, then use the popsicle stick to press it against the sides of the clip. Let it dry then close the clip.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the second clip.
Step 4: Color the craft stick black
Need I say more?
Step 5: Glue the clips to the craft stick
Using some flexible glue, glue the binder clips to either end of the popsicle stick.
