I always felt the need of a stand for a mobile, mostly for those people who spend most of the time sitting in their desk.
So I thought of converting my design into a real stand.
You can also do this if you have all these necessary tools & time :)
(Wood, Wood cutter, Wood rasp File, drill-gun, C-clamp, rubber, & glue.)
Step 1: Drawing the Design on the Wood.
First I did the marking on the wood according to the mobile size, so that it fits in.
Step 2: Ready to Cut.
Now i just cut the wood according to the marking with the wood cutter.
Be careful that you are holding the wood in some Clamp and not in your hand.
Step 3: Sticking the Rubber.
I then took a piece of Rubber and glued it in, and put another piece of wood and Clamped it so it sticks properly.
And then used the wood-file & Sand-Paper to smooth it out.
Step 4: Final Look,
And finally after using the sand paper and making all the surfaces smooth, this is what you get.
If you are a regular user of pen or pencil, you can simply make a hole in the back side.
