Very nice Dave, grandchildren are a joy – it’s nice when you create something that makes their lives a little easier. Hopefully your Great Grandchildren will be able to use it down the line.

Thank you for the comments.
I got the idea from the internet, then drew up my own design.
Grandchildren are great, it is a whole different relationship.

Simple and multifunctional but very elegant and beautiful. Love the wood contrast with the plugs. Thanks for sharing!!!
