    I was in a similar boat and found a great solution from Simpson Strong Tie in the form of a simple kit they sold at Home Depot - http://www.strongtie.com/products/diy/kwb.html

    The nice thing is that it includes all the brackets and screws you need to build a nice bench and even provides a cut list. Changing the dimensions is very easy. The finished project can be seen here:

    Update…I just checked and Home Depot still sells the kit, but only Online or Ship to Store:

    I bought one these a little while back and just got around to trying it. I plugged a SanDisk Sansa Clip+ MP3 player into my 2008 Unibody MacBook Pro and it initially seemed like it was charging, but in fact the device never mounted as mass storage in the OS nor did it try to charge. I plugged the cable into a USB wall charger and the player seems to be charging now. I’d be happy to try any suggestions for making it work if possible, but I think I will just hold onto this for charging duties for now. I’m fine with that, but usually Sparkfun is really good about acknowledging the limitations of products they sell. Since Sparkfun just made a big post about moving to Github to manage projects not only internally but also with the community, maybe it might be possible to setup a compatibility database that might help track down the true source of the issue? Might be an interesting example of crowd sourcing a problem…

    Any chance of a fitted enclosure being offered?

    When will these kits be for sale on the site? I tried to search for them and came up empty…
