Handy Multi-Outlet Cord Stand
We spotted this idea by Hector Nieves on Instagram. He made a portable wooden cord holder and outlet stand thatís easy to move around his shop. The base is a foot-long piece of 2 by 12-in. plank that holds a 2 by 4-in. upright secured with a metal L-shaped bracket. Two outlet boxes are mortised into the upright toward the top and provide easy access for plugging in power tools.
††††The outlets get their power through a heavy-duty supply cord that hangs from a hook on the back of the stand when itís not in use. Nieves mounted a metal handle on top of the 2 by 4 so the device is easy to move around. Nieves says one person whoíd seen his idea suggested adding hooks on the side of the upright post to hold small tools. Another suggested adding small caster wheels so the stand can be rolled around a shop. A third suggestion was to make the stand with a larger base, and have two upright posts with a cord reel mounted between them.
