From his majesty’s recliner in front of the TV, I command the lights in room, ceiling fan, TV, cable box, surround sound, streaming internet media, and a blue ray player. I juggle six remotes with more buttons than the entire Marine Band. Add a small side table and the result is a floating clutter of screaming frustration.
Solution: A caddy which clears table top and organizes the jumble. Built from left over, quarter sawn oak. The dimensions are 16” by 7 3/4” by 5”. The 3/4” stock was planed to 1/2’”. Mortise joinery, sides to top, sides to shelf. The shelf accomodates the thickest remote which is 1 1/4”. The 12 3/4’ wide shelf holds 6 remotes. Finished in Watco Danish Oil.
So, where is the 6th remote? Oh, the one for the blue ray? Hell if I know. .
