Air Filter Remote Holder

By: Erich Lage
The perfect solution for keeping track small things you don't want to lose or be looking for all the time.

e1 I recently installed a new air filter in my shop. The new system includes a remote to control the fan. However, I knew that something small like that could easily get lost in my workshop while I worked, so I came up with the remote holder you see above. e3 Three-piece construction. The holder consists of three parts — a plywood spacer that’s sandwiched between two layers of hardboard. The plywood spacer has a cutout to cradle the remote, and the front hardboard acts as a lip to keep it in place. The crown in the back piece of hardboard provides a place to attach it to the wall. e5 I also added a finger notch to make it easier to remove the remote from the holder. This was routed with a core box bit after the holder was built and assembled. Now, the remote is easily in reach and I can turn on the filter as I turn on the lights in my shop.
