Looking for a fun project in the shop that doesn’t take long and you can carry it around in your pocket where ever you go? Here’s one for you, a custom veneered smart phone case.
One of the benefits of being a woodworker is that we can frequently customize everyday items. Whether it’s building them from raw materials or adding a little flair to an existing item, it’s relatively easy to find a way to spruce them up a bit.
In today’s episode I’ll show you a little fun I’ve been having lately when I combine some inexpensive pre-manufactured plastic smart phone cases I picked up at Amazon.com with some veneers I bought at Woodcraft.com.
The process is simple, it can be relatively quick and more importantly it’s a great way to have fun in the shop and maybe even impress your friends and family (unless they’re like mine who just roll their eyes and walk away…with the item in hand.)
