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.
