    Charging station organizer to line up your devices

    The USB charging station organizer originally came with plastic separators to hold each device. But they were flimsy and broke off. Furthermore, the gap spacing was too narrow to fit my devices. I was also looking for a headphone stand, so this charg…

    I want to use 2 tall BILLY as a bedroom divider at the end of my bed. The problem is, of course, securing them. Do you know if the ELVARLI posts, if properly attached to the ceiling, would be strong enough to keep the book cases from tipping? Related…

    Make a budget friendly LED TERTIAL work lamp

    This is my hack of a TERTIAL work lamp. After an extensive research for a suitable work lamp for my JERKER desk I realized, for the available (short) budget, I was going to have to, once again, postpone my goal. But then I saw a round LED ceiling pan…
