Just a simple little box for the Cell Phone.
I thought this would be a good idea to get the Cell Phone off the counter for charging. Hung out of the way with the cord tucked in all nice and neat! Used up some walnut and pine scraps…
Tanks for looking!

COOL…

I have found that a power strip with 6 AC outlets and 6 USB outlets very handy…
When you can Stop using the individual transformers for the USB cords to plug into, it frees up all kinds of space required… All of the transformers can be put in a drawer and forgotten until a special use is required.

Then, phones, pads, bluetooth speakers, etc. can be used very easily without using the Space Hog Transformers.

Thanks Redoak49, I think it’s safe to do. The box including the phone only weighs in a 6.7 oz. It’s very light, not much pressure on the plug at all.
