So I got the plans for this from whoa, and since my wife had been talking about one I decided to go a head and make it. Took a lot more wood then I had anticipated or calculated for. Mainly this was due to the width of board I was getting at first. Had to due some joining and resawing to get all the dimensions needed. In the end the wife is happy with it, so I won’t complain, me I think I could have done better, but I did learn some new things from this build. Oh the wood used was cherry, with just clear gloss polyeurathane for finish. One last thing I forgot to mention the trim panel and the door are held in place by magnets so you can access the recess for the power wires, and the area for the surge protector.

The charging station isn’t for my shop, it is actually meant for phones and tablets to be charged and will hang in our bedroom so we can charge devices there over night while we sleep. I am already considering another one for my mom. She has a Iphone tablet though so I will have to modify the plans a little bit to accommodate the larger dimensions of that. Also the plans are expandable so you can add more shelves if needed, which in a short while I will probably have to do as the kids start getting their own phones.
