The Two-Shelf Telephone Stand/Side Table
|Here's a super project that's quick to cut out and even quicker to assemble|
We know....today, everybody has a cell phone attached to their belt, the side of their purse and even the dashboard of the car. After all, this IS the mobile society, isn't it? Well....yes....but there are always those hold-outs who prefer to have a number of hard-wired phones distributed conveniently around the house.
Question is....where do you put them? Not every room has a convenient place for a phone...and even fewer yet have room to keep a phone book and notepad in close proximity. Enter this dandy little stand from the '80's. Even if you decide not to try and market these stands for use with the telephone, they'll also make great Side Tables for a small lamp and some reading materials.
So....before we get started, let's talk briefly about three things:
For added efficiency, try pad-sawing the Side shape cut-outs and leg shapes in pairs if you're using your Scroll Saw or in stacks of up to six if you've designed them so you can use your Bandsaw without having to make a piercing cut. You can hold your multiples together temporarily during this process by using some high-strength Double-Stick Tape. So, let's get started on building the design shown here.
