The wife has been wanting something like this for a while now. I kind of see it as a way to collect more junk into a smaller space, but it does work much better then the desk organizer we have been using.

The wood is red oak with a walnut drawer pull, approximate size is 11” x 11” x 5”.
This project took a weekend, with another day dealing with the stain and topcoat.
Nothing thrills me more then applying a finish to small objects with lots of even smaller nooks and crannies!
The small hole on the back is for USB charger cables.

I have been wanting to draw down my scrap wood collection and something small like this seemed like a good use for scraps.

I didn’t make a dent! (and this is just the shorts and narrow scraps of red oak)

I wanted to make room for several remotes, a box of tissue, some glasses, an iPad and Kindle, various pens, and any junk imaginable.

Thanks for looking!

Hey, Splinter, that is a very nice little project. I bet they would sell well if you were into production. That would deplete your scrap in no time. :)

Thanks Art!

SWMBO said the same thing. I was going to make a few more but then I discovered how I hate finishing the darn things. May just have to go with Cherry and a nice latex dip-finish…..

Looks nice! How do the iPad and Kindle fit in? Is the drawer that long? (I don’t think it looks it from the photo.) Just curious.

Thanks Dan!

The slot in the back (behind the remotes) is for a kindle/iPad. The small slit keeps the charger cable from sliding out and running away when it is not plugged into the device, I put it up high so it would be easy to grab, rooting around for the cable at the bottom of the slot, since it is fairly narrow and deep, would be difficult.

Ideally a docking arrangement would be better!

Oh, duh. I can’t believe I missed that. Thanks for the explanation.
