Awhile back I watched this Cali Lewis Geekbrief podcast (episode 108) where she created a gadget recharging cabinet from a shoe organizer cabinet. It was OK but I didn’t love it.
Marc Spagnuolo (pictured in the third image below) was recently a guest on Leo Laporte’s TwitLive webcast. He was inspired by Leo to create TheWoodWhisperer podcast. He built this customized gadget recharging cabinet for Leo as a gift in thanks for inspiring him to start his own podcast. Leo loved it. I like it.

The pieces on the back are magnetized so they can be easily removed, as necessary, to accommodate the wires.
I think it is designed to sit on the floor but I’d want something like this to hang on the wall – or at least sit on something so I don’t have to kneel down to use it. It would be too low sitting on a floor. However you mount/position it, you’d need to easily get in behind to thread the wires as gadgets come and go. As you can see from the picture below (taken the next day), Leo placed it on top of a larger cabinet behind him.
