Do You Want To See How To Make A Wood Log Side Table With Wireless Charger?…Enjoy

Step 2: Prepare the Log

First pick a log of the right size
Then remove the bark and leave the log a few weeks/months to dry
Flatten the top and bottom of the log so it is straight and not wobbly

Step 3: Slice the Top

Then remove a very thin slice of the top of the log.
The thinner you can slice it the less you have to sand it later.

Step 4: Fit the Wireless Charger

First center the charger. When it’s in the right place, mark it so you know where to hollow out the wood.
Then make room for the charger, I used a chisel, but if you have something like a router it would even be more easy.
Fit the charger
Drill a hole from top to bottom to guide the charger cable to the bottom of the log.
Install the charger with cable and test if it’s (still) working before glueing the top back on

Step 5: Prepare and Put Back the Top Slice

Get the top part and sand it down as thin as possible.
I kept that piece of wood wet all the time to prevent it from cracking.

When you think the top piece is thin enough you can test it on the charger and see if your phone is charging.
If this is the case, we can glue back on the lid. I used some normal wood glue and some clamps.

Step 6: Sanding

Sand the whole log so it will look neat

Step 7: Coat

To finish the wood log I gave it a few layers of wood coating.
