Ok… Ok… I know it’s not fancy. But heck… I’m tired of moving this dang extension cord around in my shop. It’s a 100’ extension cord and its kinda heavy. We use it for the electric weed eater. It’s very handy but don’t have a place for it and its always in my way.
Today has been a cleaning day in my shop. So while cleaning I decided to finally take care of this thing and this is what I have. Of course… All recycled material. A beat up 1×10 that had a bunch of knots and a crack. That crack isn’t going to affect anything. A scrap piece of 2×3 cut in half. And I cut a piece of plywood for the long strip. Last year we had a leak in the garage and temporarily had some rope to tie some tarps down. The rope is from that. So now not only do I have a good place to wrap the cord… I can also hang it up on the wall… And also use the rope to carry it to its destination. Popped two screws in each board… Good to go. All the wood was from my last score that I didn’t share with you guys. It was a crazy mix of scraps.
Lol. I love it. I know it’s not woodworking at its finest… But it’s made out of wood and it serves a great purpose in my shop. Now to come up with something for my air compressor hose. Lol:)
Gosh… It sure doesn’t take much to impress me does it. Lol!!!
Hope you are all having a great weekend.
