hi this is my first instructable so please be gentle with any feed back and comments. plus I know the finished item is still a little rough around the edges but unfortunately all my more specialist tool are at work and I'm on the sick at the moment with no way of getting them.
This "ible" came about when I received my new contract phone and although amazed at the quality and performance was a little let down with the fact that all the stands and docks that you could get was not the smallest of items to carry around.
So I decided to make something for my self while I'm off work with a broken ankle then it hit me why not post it on instructables and enter a competition while I'm on.
to win the laser in the epilog competition would be great because it would mean I get the chance to start my own company and design and make things like my instructable on a larger scale.
well on with the instructable.
Step 1: Marking Out and First Cut
first you need to gather your tool and materials.
1x1/8"(3.5mm) plasticard/ styrene sheet most craft and model shops will stock this I got mine from hobby craft but it was made by Midwest products in the u.s.
3x 3/4"x 1/16"(20mm x 2mm) wood nails.
1/6"(2mm) drill bit.
now as all ways these tools are are sharp and dangerous if used improperly so please be careful.
ok so step one you need to draw around a regular credit card or similar card that fits in your wallet once you have done this add an extra 1/4"(6mm) to the shortest side.
Now Mark three lines 1/2"(12mm) in from both shorter edges and one of the longer edges.
Then once your happy cut along all three lines now you have a choice here depending on what tools you have available I
ended up using my craft knife and making several cuts along each line but you could use a cutting disk or side cutter on your dremel or any other suitable tool.
