We needed a good way to manage all of our portable electronics charging. I decided to build a charging station that could fit on our kitchen counter. I took it one step further and designed a four port USB charging power supply/module that I could build into the design. I installed two of these so we could have a total of eight charging ports.
The charging station it’self is made of red oak and poplar. I did simple dado joints for the pocket dividers and butt jointed the main box to the end panels. Finish is several coats of clear spray laquer.
For the USB charger port cutouts, I decided to mill some thin red oak panels and then cut them out with my CNC. I was really pleased with how they turned out.
This project was a nice mix of woodworking, electronics and CNC. I created a new video for the project and it’s available to watch at my YouTube channel:
Thanks for watching!
