Cut two 18-1/2" long sections from the 1 x 8 board.
Draw the pattern onto one of the boards using the pattern layout guide. Drill a 3/8" hole into each of the pockets so the Jig Saw blade can pass through. Use a Jig Saw to cut out each pocket. Sand the cut marks with a rotary tool.
Mark a drill point in each corner of the 2nd board using measurements from the diagram. Using a Countersink Bit, drill a shallow hole about 1/8” deep. The hole depth needs to only be deep enough for the recess knob screw head.
In the center of each hole, drill a 7/64” hole through the board.
Install the screws for each of the knobs. Recess each of the screw heads into the boards.
Align the top board over the bottom board. Apply glue in between each board and nail from the bottom side.
Using a 3/4" Spade Bit drill through bottom board. Hole should be centered and at the back edge of slot.
Mark a line 1/4" from each end and cut. This will clean up both ends and create a 1” offset around the pockets. Make sure to cut outside of the line. Place boards on the Miter Saw with the screws facing upward.
Sand the charging station and apply finish coat as desired!
