To reduce clutter on the counter top I built this small cabinet to house our phones and tablets. It measures 18 X 18 X 7 3/4 inches. I used louvered doors for ventilation since there is a small amount of heat built up. It is hung to the wall with a french cleat. You can also make it to sit on a desk. Another option is a solid door with the back panel of pegboard for ventilation.

That’s really nice!! Like the shuttered doors. Did you make the shutters?

that’s genius and very tasteful
If you had an outlet strategically on a wall this could be built over it
I hear in new homes people are making one of the kitchen drawers with plugs for the phones and tablets too
great job

I did not make the shutters. I found them in a thrift store. There were full size and I altered them. Our congregation is still enjoying the conference tables I copied from you.

Have your say...
