With the new school year season upon us thoughts turn to organizing along with new supplies and books.
We all have electronics as a part of out lives that need to be charged and it’s confession time for me…this is what my electronic charging area looks like:
Can you say, “oy”!? Well Walnut Hollow boxes to the rescue!
If your world looks like mine read on for the tutorial on how to make a charging station cord box.
Supplies and Tools:
Sand paper and sanding bits
Determine the sizes of the holes based on your cord widths and the number of holes you need.
If your cords and electronics are larger choose another size Walnut Hollow Box to accommodate your charging cord needs.
Draw the necessary holes and the cross line marks. Drill holes in the box by aligning the tip of the drill bit on the center of the crossed lines.
Once you have all your holes drilled sand the edges with the Professional Rotary Tool.
For a final touch I painted the box white for a clean tidy look. I sanded the edges again after the paint was dry for a slight “shabby chic” look.
I hope you’ll try making a charging station box to tidy up your world of electronic cable madness.
