how to make a tv remote control holder
Then, maybe the solution is to make your own custom caddie organizer.
You can buy these on the table next to them and there are some designs on the armrest of the sofa.
What I am looking for, however, is something that I can easily attach to the side of the coffee table, out of the way, and still close to the hand;
So that I can give my coffee and a plate of snacks for free while watching TV.
So I decided to make my own custom box, sourced from scrap, which won\'t cost me anything but a little bit of time.
For a while I was a little upset because I wasn\'t always able to find the remote when needed;
Most things are remotely controlled today and I\'m sure I\'m not alone.
You just have to enter the room and find the TV in the middle of your favorite show or a good movie, I want to record it on your digital TV box or you want to watch the DVD, but can\'t find the remote.
It is at this time that the organizer may give the answer;
Of course, let\'s say the whole family is together.
Operate and put back the item after using eg.
When my great-grandmother tried to instill in her child, it was a place to accommodate everything.
This article is about how I can solve this problem, in the workshop at the end of our garden, find my own custom design from the waste material;
It took me hours to do a quick DIY project.
So hopefully it will inspire other people who like to make it by hand.
Do not necessarily use the same materialg.
If you like sewing, then it is very promising to make something similar with curtain material and sew a little hard plate on the back to harden.
Deciding on a design that affects where you intend to be and how to fix the TV remote control excludes the possibility of making a separate box similar to what you can buy, because it will take up too much valuable floor or table space, block the way, or place it in a place where it cannot be used.
The most convenient place for the whole family is the side of the coffee table and will not hinder them.
In this case, we used a nest of tables in the living room.
This is my ideal solution because it uses the space that was originally wasted, which is not going to be used for anything else or take up more space in the living room.
In fact, by placing the remote control in a custom stand, it actually saves valuable space because they themselves do not mess up the precious space on the coffee table;
There is an added benefit that it keeps them neat when not in use.
So my design is based on making an organizer that comfortably fits the space that was originally wasted between coffee table legs.
At the time of preliminary measurements, the available space between the legs of the table is 9 inch (230mm).
Each of our remote controls is 2 inch wide (50mm).
So, given the spacing, there is enough space to accommodate three side by side, which is the number we currently have;
One TV, one Tivo cable TV box, one surround sound system and one DVD player;
So the organizers of the three are right.
Another requirement of the design is for something that is not permanently fixed or semi-fixedpermanent e. g.
Screwed to the table legs, but rather a box that can be easily placed in place and removed quickly when needed, such as cleaning, dusting and polishing the table legs, or, if we decide at any time to connect the box to another table.
So I would also like the design to be adaptive so that it can be installed on any table of similar size with a little adjustment or no adjustment.
For rigid designs, in order not to damage or mark the coffee table, my preference for this DIY project is a wooden box design placed between two legs, using leg support and table support to keep the wooden box in place, without marking or damaging the table.
Alternative ideas and materials for making the remote holder you can make custom caddies with a wide variety of materials such as canvas or old curtains.
Individual pockets of sows (
One for each remote)
, Weigh at the bottom of the canvas and sow a hard board or thin plywood inside as a solid backing.
Then sew a wood or wire hanger on the top;
The hanger provides a way to hang the caddie organizer and make it harder on the top.
If you are willing to screw a hook to the table, installing a hook under the edge of the desktop will provide a place where it can be hung.
Otherwise, you may want to fix it on the wall behind the sofa, although it may not be very convenient to use.
Purchasing materials recycling materials decided to build a wooden building, a simple design does not require much wood, there are many small pieces of waste wood in my workshop, this is just a case of choosing the wood I want to use.
So, it\'s time to have a cup of coffee and I can sit in my shed and choose the best coffee;
The project I chose for this DIY project is :-
Old coffee table top of 10mm plywood (
Just half inch thick)
Front and back.
When in place, some spare 3mm plywood is used as part of the side and extended back as a simple means of support.
A small piece of pine flooring on the base, and a piece of wood removed from the broken rack, as a locking rod on the back, secure it between the tea legs.
The interior needs to be filled to hold the remote in place gently but firmly, and to prevent them from pinging.
A few years ago, I removed an old armchair, recycled anything of value such as red upholstery fabrics and furniture foam pads, and then burned or otherwise handled the rest;
This fabric and foam liner is just right for the job.
I didn\'t spend a penny by using all of this waste material, just in my few hours.
Carefully measure and do any necessary calculations the width between the tea legs I intend to put into the caddie is 9 inch (230mm).
Three remote controls, 2 inch wide each (50mm)
The side of the wooden box is 3mm plywood (
Combined thickness of inches or so).
Since it is not intended as a permanent fixture, but I can easily lock and release something when I need it, I allow about inches (12mm)leeway.
Therefore, the remaining width available internally is about 8 inch (210mm);
About inches (12mm)
When all three devices are stored, this is ideal between each device.
For the depth of the box, the thickness of the device is from 25mm (I inch)and 35mm.
The foam I use is 10mm thick and filled on both sides of the interior with a combined depth of 20mm;
The interior decoration has been added only a few millimeters.
The foam is sponge and I want a tight but not too tight fitting so that each device can hold firmly, but it is easy to insert and remove when needed.
To do this, I calculated that the ideal internal width should be 45mm at the bottom and 50mm at the top.
For the internal height, all three of our devices are at different heights from 7 inch (180mm)to 9 inches (230mm);
So I decided 5 inch (130mm)
As the best height.
The building guide, made of wood and filled with recycled foam and interior decoration materials, has made all necessary measurements to determine the design and procurement of all required materials, it\'s just a matter of cutting wood, assembling, installing foam liners and upholstery materials and doing a trial run.
Here is a simple guide to construction.
Measure the mark and cut the base from a piece of wood (
21mm thick pine flooring in this example)
Measurement 210mm (8 inches)by 45mm (
Below 2 inch).
I cut an edge at a slight angle so the front is tilted 5mm (1/4 inch)
More than 130mm (5 inch)height.
I\'m not good at geometry, so I did it with my eyes and put it in a big position, but I want the angle of the cut to be between 5 and 10 degrees?
Cut the front and back to 210mm (8 inches)and 180mm (7 inches)high; which is 50mm (2 inches)
Above the internal height to allow the thickness of the bottom and create a recessed area under the bottom of the box to tilt on the tea legs stand as shown in the picture.
Stick the front and back to the base bracket (
Glue and nail gun)
To make the internal height 130mm (5 inches)
When the box unit is placed on the table leg stand, a gap is left below the bottom.
Place the adhesive front and back on the plywood for the side to be used as a template for marking and cutting both ends.
Only drop these to 130mm (5 inch)
The height of the interior, not the complete 180mm (7 inches)
So when it comes to locking in place, the side panel does not prevent the box from being placed on the leg stand.
Cut the side plate, then glue and fix it in place.
Measure and cut the foam to fit everything inside the box.
Push the foam to the proper position and place it at the top with a few DingTalk.
Once nailed to the top, natural friction from the foam will remain in place, so there is no need to fix it at the bottom anyway.
Use a large number of interior decoration materials (
More than needed)
Starting at the center of the material, push it inside the box and fill the entire box to the bottom and corner.
Leave a few inches of surplus when in place (50mm)
Fixed in place with interior trim nails, close to each other every once in a whileg.
So they came into contact with each other.
Once the interior decoration materials are firmly nailed in place, the remaining materials can be cut;
Since the box is only 2 inch wide, pull the corner of the interior decoration material from one side to the other (
So it\'s hidden inside)
Fix the material firmly to the side.
If you\'re not sure how to do this, then use a thicker side plate so you can also decorate the material on the side nails.
Add a high enough backing to the box so that the top of the back rests on the outside of the table support.
The backing is not required to be thick and heavy, so a 3mm piece of plywood is ideal.
Install some mechanisms, such as bolts or latches, on either side of the back so that when the bolts are fixed in place, it locks it on the legs of the table.
With this design, the caddie is slightly tilted outward from the bottom up, so you need to give it a test fit to determine the best position to locate the Bolt, for the one I did, it\'s under half the back.
In order to hold and hold the back of the table legs, I chose to use a wooden spindle that was turned in the center so that once the box was placed under the table, I could turn the spindle into a horizontal position and grab the legs at once.
In my design, I deliberately wanted the gap under the base to be wider than the thickness of the leg support in order to allow some room for installation and provide more versatility, so that it fits a wider range of tables of similar sizes.
This can make the unit a bit soft when first installed, but can easily cut a small L-shaped wood into a certain size and slide under the base, place the table leg bracket as a wedge to make the fitting tight.
If I want to make the accessories more permanent, it is easy to install a bead under the base of the box so that it can be comfortably installed in place without the need for a wedge.
Dry test and make any necessary adjustments as needed, if satisfied, clean the surface, or clean the wood stains, varnish or paint to taste, this is once the box unit is well put into trial operation, what I will do.
