    Went out and made me a desktop cradle for my phone today.
    Didn't just like to lay it down on the desk, so i came up with this.

    Made it out of walnut.

    Patches,
    If I could Paypal you some cookies, cake and ice cream, would do so. You could be on retainer for my 9530.

    it's easy, you just find a way to send like visa gift cards for grocery stores, and i'll buy the cookies myself, and we save paper and shippign as well!

    You never know, when this (my) 9530 screams, like a big baby, and I need someone to hold and coo to it, will PM you, remind you about the retainer and the rest is sweet as a cookie, right?

    hanau1,
    Bet you could make those beautiful cradles, and folks like me without the tool machinery, stain, and N/C walnut would give you $. Or is it proprietary? Hanau1?

    Patches,
    Well, I tried for you. N/C walnut is def beautiful, and maybe these cradles are made. Will research it, maybe will find one in myrtlewood?

    i can make some if people are interested?

    just got done making one for my son and now my daughter wants one.

    is this alright with the board owners to do?

    i have red oak, walnut, cherry and maple.

    horseshoe as for the machinery i have a complete wood shop.
    but on this i used wood straight from the saw mill that has been dried.
    used a planner, joiner, table saw, radial arm saw and band saw to make these.

    if i knew where to get myrtlewood from i would make it for you.

    i have red oak, walnut, cherry and maple. Would you have access to mesquite? Is red oak very dark inside?

    Myrtlewood is only from Oregon. That one may be harder to get vs mesquite?

    That has to be one of the single most beutiful cradles I have seen in a long time. Shipping to the UK would be extortionate so I think I may have to pass on hiring your services

    Excellent Job OP. I think I might just have to make one myself... I do work in the lumber industry... It would look nice on my desk.
