Power outlets in center console

I am planning on adding 115V outlet, 2 USB power outlets and a 12V power port to my center console. Has anyone done this? I'm most interested in parts suppliers. I'm planning on running heavy gauge wire directly from one battery and controlled with a solenoid to turn on / off the power with the key. It would be great if someone manufactured a panel with the connections I am looking for. In any event, has anyone done this, pictures, parts list?

I am using an 08 center console. it has an internal power plug (12v). I have a relay that is turned on by the ignition wire that is powered by a 12v source direct from the battery.

I have that hooked up to a small 4 circuit fuse block so all my after market stuff turns on and off with the truck.
