Fantastic job. Love the design and walnut is allways a top choice of mine. The PurpleHeart handle gives it just enough color to bring out the great grain in the walnut. What did you use to line the top tray?

Great job. Keep it up.

The dimensions are 10.5” x 6.5” x 3”

There are no provisions for charging cables. I am working on a design for a Valet Charging Station with a built in power strip.
