I really appreciate the feedback you all gave me for version 1.0 in my previous post.

Here is the updated version.

I basically started over with the phone upright and added cord management and two contoured valet areas. Also added rubber feet.

Should fit three phones or 1 phone and and ipad but I still have to test the fit.

Let me know what you think of this one – good or bad feedback – it all helps.

This one is made from reclaimed elm finished with mineral oil.

Made on CNC.

I like that quite a bit. Big enough to hold my pocket contents but not big enough to collect crap. Tastefully done.

That appears much more useful than the first one. I like it.

I like it too. Nice simple design.

Just consider the many phones and tablets that have cases on them.

My thought.

I think this design is a significant improvement over the first. This has more of a “valet” look to it. I could see this on a kitchen counter, on an office desk or on a nightstand. If it was intended for use on a nightstand, I could see you using the little pockets for rings, jewelry, etc. great job. Just one question: have you tried it with a tablet yet? Just thinking that if it leans back at too great an angle it may tip.

Looks great!

I agree this is a better, more versatile design Adrian. Not sure my Otter Box phone case would fit though. It is right at 3/4” thick. How is the charger cord secured? It would be a pain to constantly be turning it upside down to fish the cord out.

Slot is 9/16 so I suppose otterbox cases will not fit this one.

Well done. I was wondering how you did the trays. Makes sense when I read CNC… Nice job.

I like it a lot! I saw the holes going down for the cords, but are there holes in the back to feed the cords through?

Ken- I was thinking making it like a Bandsaw box/tray for those of us without CNC capability… yet. :)

Adrian making the back piece taller & deeper would allow for tablet use, too. is it wide enough to fit two phone if they’re laying down on their sides?? those are my 2 cents worth. great job

I really like the look of it. Looks very functional. Good display of wood also.

Chris said it. Some “organizers” are so big they become depositories for 86 pens, 37 old receipts, 8 bucks worth of change, etc, etc. Your design is VERY well-planned, elegant, and functional.

Honestly… I need one of those! As with all the comments above mine, it’s perfect for what I carry in my pockets every day, but not large enough to start collecting junk. My one question is: how deep is the slot for the electonics?
