This little cabinet houses a power strip and is used to hide cell phones, mp3’s, camera’s and other small rechargables while they are being charged.
A benefit is that all items can be charged simultaneously while using only one outlet.
The cabinet is made of Walnut and Lyptus. The lyptus inserts in the doors are 1/4” thick with 1/8” inlaid and 1/8” proud of the door surface. The top corners of the cabinet are dovetailed and rounded. The side cove molding flows into the wider portion at the bottom of the cabinet. The lower front panel is dovetailed to the side panel.
The cabinet is finished with acrylic.
The interior back panel is baltic birch and has slots cut to allow the pass-through of the charging cords Likewise, the shelves are baltic birch. The interior is finished with a few coats of shellac.
The Exterior back panel is baltic birch and slides to allow the addition or removal of the charging transformers.
Cup hooks are inside the doors for keys. Notice that the interior shelves are cut back to make room for the hanging keys.
After completing this unit, I concluded that it makes one think of an old table radio.
