Arrow Custom charger stands/charging stations

I am thinking of making a custom charging station that will hold my GFX and power supply. I am thinking of using thick plexiglass for this project unless somebody comes up with a better idea. Anybody got plans or pictures of their custom rigs? Thanks.

make it out of PVC. Mine holds by 30amp power supply, Turbo 35 and a battery cool down fan. I don't have any pictures but I't 1/2" pvc and I've got maybe $5.00 in it. Even made car stands.It's more durable that plexiglass.

Plexiglass is easy to work and comes in cool colors. I want to make my next one out of plexi. Here is what i have now i am a cabnet maker but it is heavy ! Made of plexi and it would be much lighter.

Here's a picture of my new GFX Power Cube. I'll add the power supply & 112a to the bottom level tonight. My pit light sits on top, total foot print 10.5 x 10.5

JDxray thanks the plan is to have the plexi bat holder lite up by installing lights in the end of the plexi rods.It would be like fiberoptic lights.I incountered a problem when some of the decals i used color ran when i glued it together. I will make another and test the decals first. By the way the bat holder slides into the box when not in use and looks like a face plate. The whole thing could have been made slimmer.Every thing else came out fine, thanks for your comments!
