1. My husband and I both have (and love) our Droid X phones.
2. My phone is always in my sight and has it's own little homemade stand.
If you have a smart phone, you probably have lots of apps and you spend a lot of time looking at them.
I enjoy viewing Facebook, YouTube videos, email, texts and more on my phone. It's a lot easier to do these things while my phone is sitting on it's phone cradle, made by my handy husband.
You will need:
Thin composite board
90 degree bracket
Piece of wood for bottom, serving as a shelf for bottom of phone
Something to cut the board with (he used a miter saw)
Wood glue to attach the bracket and shelf
The amount of board and size of bracket you will need depends on the size of your phone.
I have a cradle by my bed where it sits and charges. I also have a cradle at work where my phone stays docked beside my computer so that I can keep an eye on it should my phone light up, indicating that I have a message. The sides of the phone are free so that you can charge it if needed.
