If you are like me, you are probably sick of trying to find an outlet and place to charge your laptop, tablet, phone, camera etc. Then multiply by how many family members you have and you may need to make one of these as well. It has 14 outlets to allow for many different types of chargers to be left in it. So far I have had 3 tablets, 2 phones, 1 laptop and two camera batteries going at one time. I have a suge protector installed on the incoming power feed, so did not need to put in this cabinet.

Unit is made from recycled Narra and Balayon timbers. Shelves are covered in imitation felt type material for hard wearing. Legs were steam bent.

Nice cabinet; good idea. It seems every day a guy has yet another (different) gadget to recharge !

Beautiful! I may need to steal this idea from you. My wife has been talking about needing a place to charge all the “stuff” we seem to accumulate.
