Very nice! Can you share a few details such as what the material is and how you made it?

Looks good! The material almost reminds me of that aluminium that they use for pipe insulation cladding. A very handy addition, two power outlets in a clean install.

Thanks. It's made from thin sheet metal. The finish is a Rust-oleum paint called Hammered. The edging is tubing I got at Lowe's that I split open and epoxied on. I am working on a improved design now (a better fit), If people are interested, I will document how I make it make it available along with the pattern.

When I get it done I will let everyone know. My only request is that you only use it for your personal use. If anyone else is interested, just post it here and I will keep track of everyone.
