A dual Ipod and mobile telephone charger base

Just days ago my instant coffe maker couldn't make coffees anymore so i demolished the body. I took all the useful parts like switch, cable, some motor parts. The plastic body was ready to throw it away when my wife gift me a touch pod 2nd gen. So i was looking forward for anything to use it as a charger unit and a an holding assistance. Initially i thought to make it something by the scratch using an old useless sony walkman but i had a lot of mods to do on it. After i tried an old mouse but on second thought i consider that i need a charge unit for the top most useful gadgetss in my house: The Ipod touch and my cell phone. But the mouse has limited space for both of them so then i called in mind the broke coffee maker. The top of it is alike a mouse but in 3 times more. So offers the ideal space to lay down safely the 2 connection gadgets. The only i needed is some time, some mood, and some very simple tools (the must have of them)

materials....
-Something analog to the top of my coffee cup, for a single Ipod is ideal an old mouse.
-carton cuter or any sharp cutter
- Some carton (about 2-3 mm)of thickness) to cover the bottom of the base unit.
-Some glue, or silicone, or hot glue.
-Scissors
-some pieces of packaging foam (optional)
- a Dremel tool and some of the drills
- 2 pieces of sand paper (one fine and one for the more harder)
-Some weight to make the unit havier and more stable (iron pieces of 30, 40, 50 gr)


SO lets Do It!

thnx...the iphone/ipodtouch position is just for them and maby some new iphone clones. The year i made this was only iphone/ipodtouch in stores. The other socket for the cellphone is generic too... The weights I used i din't bought them actually. I exctract them from dead electric devices such as coffee mixer and orange squiser....but you may find them on Ebay i guess
