Phone & Watch Charging Stand

Charging Stand

Needed

  • Phone and Watch Charging Cables
  • Oscillating Belt Sander
  • Drill Press or Hand Held Drill with Bits
  • Wood Glue

Idea

My wife currently has a Pixel2 XL and a Pebble Time (i.e. the best damn smart watch ever), and her nightstand is a mess of cables and baby stuff. Control can be had with some clever woodworking skillz. Original idea from Bob [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6x7GwJxuoABSosgVXDYtTw] (he likes to make stuff).


Build

Leftover mohogany and a handcarved maple heart inlay completed the look. All I had on hand were 1x scraps that needed glue up for thickness. Not having a lathe poses a challenge to making things round, but this was accomplished with time and patience on the oscillating belt sander – using a roll of duct tape to get a circular reference. The channels used for wiring were plunged with a router straight bit.
