Fniss gadget organizer and charger

Ariel made a gadget organiser and charging station from the Fniss wastepaper basket.

It’s pretty easy. All you need to do is basically cut a piece of plywood to “stop” the top and form a base for your gadgets to rest on. Then, cut a hole in the plywood and drill a hole in the Fniss for your cables.

    It might look cool to add a small light in the charging station for a muted glow.

    They cut off the end and attached a new plug to the powerstrip. If you at the first picture and the last you can see that the ends are different.

    I want to know how they got the mains plug through a pencil-sized hole. I didn’t see power-strip dissection on the menu.

    actually the lid of the pepsi can be found in the middle of the hole the cables are coming through.

    though i think there might be a wooden solution, unless you want the pepsi eye-catcher.

    @anon 2:20 Maybe it has an adaptor on it? Those look like European plugs.

    How is it that the canon charger has a cable coming off of it?
