In my last post, I had mentioned I made a few different items as Christmas gifts for friends and family. I previously shared the plans for one of the gifts I made, a DIY Large Farmhouse Clock. Now its time to share the plans for one of the other gifts I made: a DIY Cell Phone Charging Station / Dresser Valet! This valet includes a slot to insert your phone charging cable so your phone can be charged as it sits in the phone cradle section of the valet.
DIY Cell Phone Charging Station / Dresser Valet
Here are the abbreviated instructions for how I built this charging station/ dresser valet, for full instructions and printable plans, please visit my blog at the link at the bottom of this post.
First I cut the 1x12 board for the bottom of the charging station.
Next, I cut the 1x2 boards with mitered ends to create the sides of the charging station. I then attached the 1x2 boards to the 1x12.
I then used the miter saw to cut and miter the cove moulding pieces. I attached those to the top of the 1x2 boards.
Next I cut the boards to build the "phone cradle".
I drilled a large hole into the 1x4 board used as the phone cradle. I also drilled a hole in the center back of the charging station (for the cell phone charging cord).
Next, I attached the boards to create the "cell phone cradle" to the back center section of the 1x12 bottom board.
Using the miter saw, I cut the lattice moulding boards and attached those to form the four compartments making up the valet.
I filled all holes with wood filler, sanded, and then stained the dresser valet. I also applied interior polyurethane in a gloss finish.
I then added adhesive black felt to the bottom of each compartment, and added self-stick round felt pads to the very bottom of the valet.
I placed the phone charging station/dresser valet in its intended location and began charging my phone! :-)
