Ever since I got a standing desk, my boss has complained about all my cords laying around everywhere. I’ve got two keyboard cords, two mouse cords, two monitor cords, two monitor power cords, two monitor usb cords, the power cord for the docking station… Basically, cords, cords everywhere!
So I decided to build a cord-hiding monitor stand. After talking about it with my dad, I decided to build a shelf with a fold-down false back. There’s a one-inch gap along the back to make sure that the cords disappeared into the hide as cleanly as possible. The gap between the back and the false back is about three inches, so I could put the power strip back in there. That way, all of the cords, other than the network cord and the power strip cord, are completely contained.
I learned a lot, and while I’m not entirely happy with the end product (I tried cutting a few pieces by hand, so the cuts weren’t entirely square), it works, and it looks much better than my cord-tastrophe!
