I have long wanted to build something to mount my hand-held radios on instead of having them balancing on my workbench shelf, where they are easily knocked over. I have seen others keeping them mounted in their chargers, but after consulting with the amateur radio community decided this wasn’t such a good idea.
So it was back to my workshop to construct a simple bracket-like mounting board out of wood that I happened to have among my store of timber. I found I had a nice piece of pine as well as a sheet of 6.4mm ply wood that would do just fine. So it was out with my router, to which I inserted a 6.4mm bit to cut a dado. The ply would fit nicely into this, after glue had been applied, of course.
Once that was done I applied some oak refinishing oil, which added a nice touch to the finished product.
All my radios have the belt clips installed, which is handy as they can now clip nicely and securely to the board.
