How to Make a Desk with Hidden Wireless Charging

I partnered with Minwax and Lincoln Electric to build a desk with hidden wireless charging. I used woodworking and metalworking on this project with a walnut top and a tube steel welded base. This modern industrial computer desk has a nice simple desk feel but with tons of character including a copper metal bowtie inlay. #wirelesscharging

Lots of nice JET machinery, wish I had that stuff too lol

Jordan McCollum says:

So I am currently in the works of building a desk very similar to this, but instead of using lumber I am using a tabletop from IKEA due to limited tools. BUT I will be making the same frame. I am curious about the stability of the desk frame? is it shakey or wobbley?

Here is the wireless charging pad I used: https://amzn.to/2K1ZdJU
It has a longer range than most others I looked at.

Any idea in how to make that hole without a tupia? A forstner is too small.

Oh I like this.

Cameron J says:

Most concrete is slanted for water drainage — you are lucky that came out. Take pointers from Ave’s video on tack welding and squaring. If you made deeper knife marks and took it slow, you could have made less work inlaying that by watching for the curl when using a router bit. I think you should have saved that dovetail for a split piece of wood where it would be practical. Why didn’t you remove the case from the charger? You could have better range WITHOUT the case. If you were worried about protecting the electronics you could have used potting compound. It mixes, pours, and is almost identical to regular epoxy. You needed more curves, routered or live edges, or something to bring out more attention. Sorry to put you down but that was a waste of good walnut. Improve this thing.

App

Heather Jackson says:

You seem to have a pretty good grasp on welding for being a beginner. My husband of 18 years is a lifelong fabricator and the only thing that he says regularly is that your arms MUST be super strong because of vertical ups. He makes his welds look like a stack of dimes knocked over. You may already know this! Look forward to seeing more of your projects and trying this one out for ourselves!

Khang Xiong says:

It’s embedded. Why not make it replaceable
