I went to someone’s house a few months ago and seen the coolest charging station that was sitting on a table next to the door. I used my cell phone to photo it and said to my self I’m going to make one. The white one is the one I photo’d
The top back deck on mine opens for easy access to a power strip as well as a large opening in the rear.
I haven’t finished the draws yet but I will add a second thin layer on the draw bottom with access from the back of the pulled out draw for hiding a few dollars. I made three for the greater family but I believe there will be a day (soon) when these are in every bedroom of every household.
I have to fill the dado tracks on the left and right. I think I will add some kind of short post or something. Turn a negitive into a positive.
For me this was a nice project to take from a quick photo to finish. I have no drawing skills and so this project helped me with that a bit. I made the first proto type out of thin ply and then tweaked my errors for the finals which are made out of 1×12 pine. I could have planed them thinner but I just couldn’t see putting all those shavings in the trash. If you google charging station you’ll see the exact one I photo’d. Seems to be a common design.
