    I think I would like to use that arm to hold a needlework frame. I have been looking for a compact, portable device that could hold a needlework frame so that I could continue to embroider while recovering from hand surgery.

    Hey, this looks nice!

    This would really benefit from some photos and description showing how you made it. Even a descriptive title and a little information in the intro would be great.

    It looks interesting, and I think people would like to see how it was made. Just a couple tips! :)
