These were bluesman and PROD's instructables on making a charging station without switches or with individual switches:

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!
Step 1: Materials
Black box (Ikea Ladis) 40x30
Black lid (Ikea Ladis)
This powerstrip would fit entirely into the box, but I decided to keep the part with the switch on the outside so I can easily flip it. The side with he switch is to the wall anyways!
Step 2: Fitting the power strip
I just drew around the powerstrip's end holding it against the box and then cut the hole using a knife.
I chose not to cut all the material away, I didn't cut the bottom off, providing some support for the switch-part of the power strip.
Step 3: Securing the power strip
Two tie-wraps is more than enough to keep it in place, though I needed to combine two tie-wraps into one to be able to circle the power strip.
