I made a pair of these (his and hers kinda thing) but don’t have pictures of the other on yet. This was a plan from Wood Magazine. It was fun to make except the plans measurements were whacked but overall was a fun and very useful little project for my beginner skill level.

Nicely done.

It is a great idea, I need to make one for our collection.

What magazine was it in?

Bryan,

Nice Job! I built a couple of these 2 years ago. I think the plan was in Woodsmith. You are right about the measurements. I changed the dimensions a bit after the first one to accomodate the power strips that I could find and also for the chargers so they fit better. I like your choice of wood and the grain/pattern of it. I have had many people ask where they could buy these.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Yes I was mistaken about the magazine, it was from Woodsmith Magazine and will say if you build this from there plans double check all measurements. For me, the walnut and ash fit together nicely and I have used this combination a couple of times before. I really like ash and have a local guy that I get it pretty cheap from, maybe that’s why I like it so much. It goes good with cherry as well. As for the finish I just used a satin wipe on poly from Minwax. Thank you again to everyone.

P.S.
I am a Fallout game fan and have spent far to much time on that crazy game

Great looking project, which issues of woodsmith was it out of?
