So I've been reading Lifehacker.com and found some really nice DIY charging stations. I really liked the Ikea box versions, but I decided to change a few things.
These were bluesman and PROD's instructables on making a charging station without switches or with individual switches: http://www.instructables.com/id/The-IKEA-charging-box---no-more-cable-mess!-Very-e/

(Ikea charging box with individual swtiches)
I was really excited about this and decided to make my own version. First of all, I like black
, so it had to be a black box and I wanted one general powerswitch
. I also wanted to make a few ventilation holes in the back.
I used the following materials:
Ikea Ladis (40x30 box, 70 eurocents)
Ikea Ladis (40 lid, 30 eurocents)
Ikea Koppla (power strip with general switch, you get 2 of them for 4,99 euros)
A few tie-wraps.
Drill, different sizes (depends on the tie-wraps and chords you're using)
Thanks to bluesman and PROD for their nice instructables!
