This project to convert an IKEA organizer into a charging station (for all those electronic gadgets) originally appeared in ReadyMade Magazine, but thanks to Moderncat reader Brieanne, here we have a terrific cat-friendly variation.
Since Brieanne’s cats like to chew on cords, she and her husband decided that this would be a good project for them to tackle. The idea is to create a drawer for each device and to feed the cords through the back. Breanne chose to make drawers for Pod (iPod), Click (camera), and Chat (phone), plus an info drawer for the manuals, warranties, etc. The bottom opening happened to work nicely for a laptop docking station, but only with the drawer removed.
What to do with that extra drawer? Pop it on the top, line it with a soft blanket and, voila! an in-box for your cat. Here are some process photos: testing and supervising.
