Table with hidden wireless charging, I started with a single sheet of plywood that I could cut up into two sides and three shelves all from this one piece with the three shelves: our clamp them all together and cut all three Sides, at the same time, this just made sure that they were all exactly the same size. I routed some grooves into the side panels for the shelves to fit into. This is a nice detail, but it also adds a bit of strength to the blue, joins, unfortunately, the fits in the groove in the center panel weren't as snug as I'd hoped, but it still ended up working before I put the box together, I'm going to make sure all the parts are sanded. Now it's gonna make it a lot easier than trying to sand around the inside of a box. Lay down this glue up ended up being a bit of a disaster just because it doesn't have enough clamps, but I got there in the end and also decided to double up the shelf at the bottom, just to make it a little more bottom heavy. But it also added to the overall design, in my opinion, then I could draw some six-millimeter holes through the side panels into the shelves to add some downs.
This probably wasn't entirely necessary, but it is a little extra strength and I, like the look of exposed dowels originally, I was just going to use another sheet of plywood and call it at the top. Keep the whole thing as one piece of plywood, but I've kind of changed on mine. I'm worried that that's it's gonna be able to blend so instead, I'm gonna grab some scrap hardwood and make a hardwood top for it. Once the panel is out of the clamps, I could put it through the thickness and bring it down to around 16 millimeters and then go over it with some epoxy to take care of all the tear out. There's only really two pieces of tech that go into this build. The first is the actual wireless charger. Now, this is a very cheap charger from China. I'm sure you get much better models out there, but this does work. I've tested it and even with a thin layer of material between the phone and the charger, it still works. That's the most important thing.
The second thing is this: USB extension, cable, it's a micro USB from male to female and the female end. Has this mounting point so now I need to figure out where I want to place this on the tabletop get this installed and then this tabletop can get screwed into the carcass one of the reasons that I'm integrating the charger into the tabletop is that in the Future, if say, this charger fails, why to decide to get a better charger? I can always come back to this. Take the top off and route out a different size groove for a different charger, while still being able to use the same cable and tabletop. I started with the cable where it exited the table top and then from there continued that around to the bit where the charger needs to go in. I wanted the charger to be snug between the carcass and the tabletop. So was a case of taking out a millimeter or two at a time clean up all of the sawdust and then try again until eventually, the charger was flush. With the underneath of the tabletop I tested it, everything works.
The next thing is to get the sander and finished and installed onto the cars. I sanded all the way up to 600 grit on this, and I really enjoy working with small panels. Because of that, you don't need to spend too much time and you can get an amazing finish. I enlarge the for outside a hole so that the hardware top can expand and contract while being screwed into the plywood, which is stable overall super happy with how this one's turned out. But there are two things that I just want to mention. The first one is heat. I was a little bit concerned about this going into the project, but from all the research I did, I couldn't really find any serious negative concerts. The childhood does warm up when you charge the phone, and so in turn, this area does get hot, it's not so hot that it's damage to finished or walk the wood. So from that perspective, it's fun now I've been charging this phone now for about six hours straight and there's been no issue, so I don't think heat is gonna be a concern. I probably wouldn't leave my phone charging and go out for an entire day. Quite yet I've got the phone charging next to my bed, so I'm always here just in case there is a problem, but so far so good, I don't think there's going to be an issue with the heater.
The second thing is the amount of material between the charger and the phone. I went with as much as I could, while still being able to charge the phone so that I could keep the integrity of the hardwood top. But if I had removed a little bit more, it would have been a bit easier to locate the area that the charger is. I didn't make any sort of signs or marks where the phone needs to go, because the idea is that, for all intents and purposes from the outside, this is just a normal bedside table. I wanted it to just look like a bedside table, but sometimes it is a bit tricky trying to locate where that charger is I've gotten pretty good at nap, but in the beginning it took a while if I bought there trying to up and close it to the surface at obviously would've been better, but I went with yet idea of. I want this hardwood top to look good secondary to that is the ability for it to charge I'll.
