I don't know if it can be considered as a tool, here is my new charging station for my smartphone,
it's my charging egg :
As I'm an Android fan, the format is micro USB, so it's easy to pass the plug through a 12mm hole.
The plug and cable are melted into hot glue.
(this part not so pretty, next time I would use synthetic wood instead).
Hi, thanks !
No, I have no secret, I am happy to share my process.
For this one, I turned the egg, and cut the inclined plane on the bandsaw, using different scrap wedges hold with masking tape.
The other cuts were made with the Japanese saw.
I then planed and refined the flat surfaces with my large Japanese chisel, the egg being held in my luthiery vise (which has cork jaws).
The under channel for the cable was cut on the router table.
This thing has had a lot of success in the family, and I plan to make others.
I may try somewhat differently, maybe cutting the flat surfaces before turning.
It could be interesting also to have the usb plug installed in a transversal round dowel, so that the angle could be adjustable.
I think there is room for enhancement, your turn now !
