Wood Induction Charger

Wood Induction Charger

Powermat has come up with a great induction charging solution, but I wanted something that fit into my homes design.  What I did was remove the guts from the Powermat office charging solution, route out some hardwood, and then glued the guts back inside of the newly routed out wood.  The hardest part to this concept was getting the wood thin enough to get a positive lock on the charging coils below the surface without going through the wood.

All-in-all, I am pretty happy the way it turned out.  I also added a piece of industrial felt to the bottom of the wood with some space to the left for my keys, wallet, etc.  This keeps the wood from scratching any furniture surface it may come in contact with.
