Well, I got the parts for the wiring. An old computer power cable, metal junction box, standard duty light switch and three-prong power plug.
I stripped the rubber computer end off the computer power cable as far as I could, then cut the rest off with diagonal cutters. Then I fed the cable through a already-punched hole in one side, stripped the cable sheathing and wired the Neutral, ground and hot to the plug as normal. I left about 4” of cable sheathed, then stripped off about another 3” and wired the hot to each side of the light switch.
I tested this with a plug tester and it works! The switch switched the plug off and on just like I wanted. Awesome!!
Here’s a pic of the assembly.
