Friend of mine wanted a desktop organizer, and decided he wanted to make it a bit more modern by adding in some inductive chargers. Basically, you put your phone/laptop on top of the chargers and it charges the battery wirelessly. No cords to worry about, just toss them on and go. So, he asked if I could put it into a box. Ended up routing out the panel top to about 3/32” thick so as to minimize the amount of interference from the wood. I have no idea if it will work since I don’t have his phone/tablet with me, but it should. Theoretically.
Wood is maple that I found at Home Depot with some decent figure, and the panel/drawer front is Mahogany Crotch veneer.
Finish is Deft satin sprayed with HVLP, then rubbed out with 0000 steel wool. First time spraying a finish.
EDIT 11/14/2013: Box arrived to him, and he took a video for me showing it in action. The hot glue failed during it’s rough shipping journey (USPS lost it at one point, but it was found and kept going), but he is repairing that and just did a quick duct-tape job apparently to make sure everything worked.
