Night Stand Docking Station




Introduction: Night Stand Docking Station

I had some scrap wood and wanted to make a nightstand dock with a crazy design.

Step 1: Start With 2 Types of Wood

I started with two contrasting colors of wood. Make sure they are both the same size and thickness.

Step 2: Tape the Pieces of Wood Together

Take the pieces of wood together with double sided tape.

Step 3: Cut the Wood on the Band Saw

Then I cut the wood on the band saw in a random wavy design. Take the pieces apart and flip flop the opposite pieces to get this design.

Step 4: Glue

Once i swapped the pieces I glued the boards together.

Step 5: Repeat

Glue the two boards together and cut another wavy design into the wood. Pull apart, swap, and glue the pieces together.

Step 6: ShopBot

Next I used a ShopBot to cut pockets and profiles into the boards so they would slide together and the would be a place to hold my watches and dock my phone.

Step 7: Add Charging Cable

Then I Drilled a hole for a charging cable and hot glued the cable into place and tested it out. Next time I would want to start with bigger pieces of wood but all in all a successful project.

    Nice project! This gives me some ideas for my own projects. Really loving the charger mount in the corner, gives the effect of the phone floating in open space.

    Very nice work.

    Too bad you didn't do a highly fine sanding job at the end…

    But then again, it may well be your taste, in which case I humbly withdraw my comment.

    Cheers !
