Charging station

I was wanting to make a gift for my husband that he would actually use, and knowing that he hates having a lot of cords visible, I decided a charging station would be perfect. This was made by laminating 1/2" x 2" oak boards, with 1/2" oak dowels used to provide resting spots for the phone and tablet. It was challenging getting everything lined up correctly, as at one point, I had to connect five pieces of wood together with wood glue and clamps. Not all pieces wanted to stay lined up, but luckily, you would never know after a little sanding. I might make a custom clamp to make future builds be less stressful :-)
