When I went to find a home for the Nucleus intercom in my kitchen, I wanted to be able to hide the cord and plug. It sat on my counter and the outlet was higher so it still showed. I needed to prop the Nucleus up higher but didn't want it to look awkward. I decided to quickly make a wood easel for it to sit on. After I published that post, I had some questions about where I got the cute easel, so I decided to do a tutorial.
2 small hinges
screwdriver or drill
I grabbed a 1x6 scrap board that I knew would be wide enough. I drew the shape I wanted it to be on the printer paper and then cut it out.
I traced the shape onto the wood two times and then cut out the shapes using a jig saw.
Sand them smooth and stain them the color of your choice. I used the same weather looking stain that I used for my office closet.
Here is a printable pattern if you would like to make one like mine. Print it as an 8x10 and it will hold a 5x7 photo frame.
Once the stain has dried, add two small hinges to the back sides.
It really is that easy!

I think now that I have one for my Nucleus, I am going to make a few more for around the house. Wouldn't it look pretty on a mantel?
