Introduction: Laser Cut Wood Cell Phone Holder. "I Made It at Techshop"
We needed a better themed cellphone case to fit the Steampunk look of our costumes so we came up with this quick and simple cellphone case using the Trotec laser at Tecshop and 1/4" plywood.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Design in Corel Draw
We first took the measurements of the iPhone 4S from the Apple website and applied that when generating our box design.
The attached Corel file was left without the filigree for you to decorate as you see fit.
Step 2: Laser Cut Plywood.
Cut your plywood using the recommended settings for 1/4" Plywood.
We cut holes in the back and sides in order to secure it to the belt on our costume.
Step 3: Assemble Pieces.
There was a bit of wobble with the cellphone inside the case but it met our costume need. The measurements weren't as precise due to the fact that we used scrap wood from the bin and were in a bit of a rush to make a costume piece. You'll need to edit the file for your specific needs. Enjoy :)
