The goal is to create a shelf which hangs next to my bedroom door to hold my belongings. I was inspired by similar shelves on Thingiverse but was missing a feature to charge my earbuds, so I designed my own.

How does it work

The electronics used in this project are relatively straightforward. I used a 18650 Lithium battery, which was connected to a step-up converter in order to convert the voltage to 5v. This converter was then connected to a wireless charger, which allows me to charge my earbuds. Overall, the process is pretty simple, but it works.


I used Fusion 360 to design the shelf, drawing inspiration from similar shelves on Thingiverse. In order to minimize the amount of filament and time required for the project, I aimed to design the shelf with as little support as possible, I did this by splitting it up in multiple parts.

End Result

In the end I worked exactly like I hoped it would and I use it everey day.
