Made a tray for a laptop dock and mounted it to the bottom of my desk

My desk has been an absolute mess of wires and hardware. The worst offender was a dock I had to buy to connect my keyboard, mouse, monitor, headphones, and eventually a webcam. Then the dock connects all that via a single cable to my laptop. Really simplifies the unplug-and-go. BUT it was a nightmare of cable management.

So I built this!

(I messed with the lighting in a few of the pictures so you could see better)

There’s usually also a powerstrip in the same area. I need a few zipties, then I’ll be mounting that upside down below the desk to hide that


Excellent solution! “Under-counter / under-shelf storage is a great way to go.


Excellent solution! I like getting everything out of the way.


Practical organizational cut for the win.


Great practical cut!

I’m curious, is it held together by friction or glue?

Friction! Good ol’ .122 inches.

I didn’t want to glue it because at some point I may need to get the dock out. Right now, it’s held in place pretty tight.
