With all the work from home this year, I’ve spent a lot of time with headphones over my ears. When not in use, though, they’re taking up space on the desk, or else off to the side on a filing cabinet.
I designed and made a headphone holder for the edge of my desk, themed around the videogame “Riven”. (My Covid project has been decorating my office in a “Myst” game theme, and Riven is the second in that series.)
The design concept was to make something strong out of pieces that look fragile, so I repeated the ribs to provide a contoured resting space, then a slightly larger endcap to keep the phones in place. I did 1mm cutouts on either side for the ribs to sit in place, and added 2x3mm plywood underneath for structural support.
Not a bad little weekend project.
