After several years of piled up phones, iPads, and kindles on the kitchen counter along with all of the associated wires for charging my wife finally commissioned me to “fix it now”. So after a bit of searching around I came across this design from Wood Working for Mere Mortals. It’s a nice a quick project and really helps keep all the wires hidden.

Nice work, I made one yrs ago on here but need to redesign it, due to now having tablets and phones getting so much bigger over the years. Somehow I missed Steves post on this. Thx for the the post and again nice job should serve you well.

Nice work on this charging station. I think this may be the best design I’ve seen. I’ve gone to WWMM and downloaded the plan. Thanks for sharing.

Very nicely done! I also made mine from the WWMM plans, but had to modify due to a lack of a bandsaw and certain materials. I dont think I had any edge banding on hand. Heres what I did.

Im sure youll love how the cords are hidden away. Nice job and thanks for posting!

Just built one of these with my oldest, the finish didn’t turn out exactly how I planned. This one looks really nice, very fun project to build

Looks great. Tried to make one of these, but didn’t turn out well.
Did you use plywood? What finish did you use?

New to woodworking and nice to see a site that gives free plans and ideas. I will definitely be using some of the PDFs to slowly learn the craft once I get more tools.

Have your say...
