Got tired of charger cable flopping around and picking it up off the floor so decided I needed a charging cradle but I couldn’t make just one. Quick and easy projects. Four made from cherry, other from ebonized walnut with maple and purpleheart accent.

Very nice design. Just out of curiosity, the small pieces that the phone sits on – how did you attach them to the back?

Thanks Jim and docspenser. Since clamping would be difficult on a triangular shape I used the gel superglue. I think it’s classified as CA glue ???

Now you have to buy more phones. LOL! Might have something here if you post them on etsy? Nice work.

Looks great, like the wood combo, the half circle sanded out is a nice touch.

Good idea. I like the cord hide.

Neat little project. I might have to borrow your idea. Would make great little projects to give as gifts for the upcoming holidays.
