About RightAngleDesign

Sales 130
On Etsy since 2018

Purpose-built and functionally aesthetic

I've spent nearly 30 years as a finish carpenter, cabinetmaker, furniture builder, fine finisher, self-taught machinist, and more recently as a U.S. patent holder.

These phone and tablet stands were inspired by my frustration at having to prop up my smartphone against a peanut butter jar so I could read the news and surf at lunchtime.

As one who thrives on solving problems, I rigged up a prototype phone stand one afternoon in my shop and brought it home. My eternally obliging wife appropriated it immediately and requested a version to support her iPad.

I began to think I might be on to something.

More test models followed, then a small production run made, in part, from excess materials I had lying around the shop. Friends, family, and colleagues expressed nearly universal interest and snapped up nearly all the stands I could make.

To bring these to Etsy, I have developed relationships with several fabricators in the US and Asia who supply me with the foundational elements. I provide, apply, and finish the veneers, perform additional machining, and then assemble, pack and ship each unit myself.

Since opening the shop, I've expanded my offerings to include essential oil trays and cutting boards. Materials for those items are locally sourced and include a high percentage of salvaged and urban lumber.

In a world flooded with cheap, mass-produced consumer goods rarely
built to last or offer truly satisfying function, I believe you'll find your all our designs to be functionally aesthetic, adding unique, elegant accents to your home and office.
