Step 1: Just Put a Hole

First thing is first, just open a hole enough to get through the USB side of the charging cable...

Step 2: Get the Dongle Placed

Get the dongle placed and you can use anything to stabilize it. As you see I just shrink the original cap and attached it with a plastic cable band.

Step 3: Cable Wrapping...

Be intuitive to complete this step, once I used sticky tape but it did not turn out well. (last image)

The best solution I achieved was bending and sticking staples.

And an important note, do not forget to carve an exit for the cable on the upper part ...

Step 4: Attach the Bottom

Once you adjust the cable length just glue the bottom lid...

Step 5: Ready to Go...

    This looks super nice, especially having been made of random IKEA items :)

    That looks really nice. Way better than most of the commercial stands that I have seen.
