Smartphone mount for drums

Ever since I started using the liveBPM app on my phone, I’ve wanted a way to mount my smartphone to my drumkit.

Here’s a screenshot from the app!  It does a terrific job (*in 4/4) of tracking the beats-per-minute of whatever sound or music is happening around you.  This screenshot is from an EDM concert.  Note the strict 125 bpm…..

Anyways, I started off with a plywood design, but it failed.  Then I switched to medium density fiberboard (MDF) and shaped the parts with hacksaw and dremel.  Once I got the hardware to fit together I sealed the parts with 5 coats of quick-drying polyurethane and it works great!
