Ideas for a wall mounted cell phone charging station?

linnea56November 25, 2008

I would like to build a wall mounted cell phone charging station. I have been looking online for a charging station for a while and most are designed to be on a counter or dresser. I want to get the phones OFF the counter! Ideally I would like to be able to charge 3-4 phones and have a place where my spouse can put his wallet, etc.

Has anyone built one and have a good design idea? Or have adapted an existing box, drawer, etc., for this purpose? I am handy and make a lot with wood though am not a cabinet-maker (by any means) in terms of skills. It will be installed in my laundry room near where everyone comes in from the garage, so I donÂt need to make it out of very fine wood. If I can get it done in time it will be my husbandÂs birthday gift in January; maybe Christmas if I work fast!.

great idea methinks...why not build something like that? make a couple "pockets", stick some holes in the bottom and voila!
