The Sanctuary


From the website:

    The Sanctuary

    The Sanctuary is a beautiful, simple solution to a real everyday problem.

    A place to put the multitude of personal items we all carry around so they are easily located again when later needed — and always fully charged.

    The simple and compact design conceals a universal charger compatible with over 1500 electronic devices from most major brands and a USB port allowing hundreds more electronic devices to be charged using just The Sanctuary.

    Users can from now on charge their cell phone, PDA, Blackberry, iPod, MP3 player and Bluetooth headset simultaneously in one location.

    A Charging Station designed for daily use at the bedside table, kitchen counter, office desk, etc, The Sanctuary performs its functions with ease and elegance.

    The Sanctuary never truly reveals its multi-purpose electronic capabilities so the user develops an emotional attachment, as it becomes personalized and integral to one’s daily routine.

Seems a lot of money for an old tea-chest.

I made one of these from an old Chinese tea chest. Drilled a hole in the back, threaded a small surge protector through it, cut some thin balsa wood to go over the wooden brackets I glued inside (leaving room for the cords to go over the back) and was done.

Took about 3 hours to do...mostly because I tried to fancy the cut up with my dremel and ended up making it look worse (i.e., the cord goes in back...where you can't see it! Good enough...leave it alone!!!) Probably would have taken 20 minutes otherwise. The tea chest was like $20 from Pier One or one of those other crappy bargain stores. Past that, I saw a few surge protectors that have a few USB outlets in them...probably be better than having a wallwort inside converting the power back to USB.

Pretty easy to make...
