Hi.

Welcome to my blog/portfolio. Here I document many of my handmade pursuits. Hope you have a nice stay!

Docking station.

Docking station.

We all have that one dumping spot in the house that is a collection of small random gadgets, receipts, keys, and what not. In our home, that spot was Eric's nightstand. As our kids grew and began to cruise along furniture, that spot moved to the top of a dresser. When they grew tall enough to reach that, the spot migrated to the fireplace mantel in our bedroom. I could not stand looking at the unorganized pile of random stuff. I had to take control so I made him a spiffy little docking station that would house all these items. Turns out that this docking station is quite the popular item as I have already made a good number of these. Check it out...

This docking station features one large arm for hanging watches, bracelets, or bands. It has one shallow shelf for standing a phone. A hole in the bottom and underneath this shelf allows for threading a phone charging cable through so a phone can be easily charged without the cable dangling around in the front of the station unattractively.

Two pegs in the centre are the perfect spot for hanging rings and keys.

A small wallet, gift cards, or electronics such as an ipod can be stored in the small felt front pocket. Other larger items like glasses or regular sized wallets can be placed in the bottom front tray.

The back of the unit has another bottom tray and two felt pockets, which are ideal for holding a bit more unsightly items like folded receipts, coins, or small bottles of lotions or medications.

This station measures approximately 10" wide, 9" deep, and 8.5" tall. Whether it is placed on a night stand, the kitchen counter, or a living room side table, the station is not too large or bulky, but it certainly is big enough to store all those random items. This one is made out of pressed wood so it is light and sturdy. It is stained in a medium-dark walnut, but other stain or paint finishes are also available. It can be further customized with a hand-painted name, short quote, or inspirational words.

This docking station makes a perfect gift for anyone; parents, grandparents, siblings, friends... anyone, really, would find this useful. We all have essential items that tend to be tossed carelessly in a drawer or whatever other spot. A docking station keeps these items organized and at hand.
