I really like my magnetic cell phone charger….........which eliminates the need to plug the phone into a charger every night.

The only drawback is if you don’t center the phone properly, it doesn’t charge. If it gets accidentally bumped off its proper location, it won’t charge. I was having to place the phone, then wait several seconds until the % charging indicator would appear, indicating it is charging.

I wanted to be able to drop the phone into a locator, walk away, and know it will always be charged… I came up with this simple wood holder.

It only took a few minutes to make this from some scrap white oak….......and it works great.

See my woodworking web site for more details including the Sketchup warehouse link for the design.
