DIY: Wirelessly recharge your Nokia Lumia using a coffee table.

Wireless Charging in the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phones (not forgetting the Verizon HTC 8X) opens up news possibilities, especially for those who enjoy carrying out DIY around the home. Windows Phone Central reader Andre Schneider has managed to alter his coffee table to enable Wireless Charging by resting his compatible Windows Phone on top.

By mounting the standard Nokia Wireless Charger pad underneath the table, the Windows Phone is able to start charging when positioned above the pad. This not only provides a pretty neat trick to show off to friends and family, but also makes it super simple to charge the device. We've previously witnessed the power of creativity when it comes to DIY and accessories for Windows Phone and this raises the bar.

In case you were curious to do this yourself, Andre gives us a tip on the limitations: "Looks like the operating range through an object like wood is around 1.5cm."

Have you managed to create wondrous contraptions with Wireless Charging and a Windows Phone? Be sure to let us know what you've been up to.
