Homemade Multi-Outlet Cord Stand
Vertical 2x4 with 2 electrical sockets - a handle - and a length of electrical cord on the back fastened to wood base

With a metal handle affixed at the top, Hector Nieves' Homemade Multi-Outlet Cord Stand can be moved most anywhere to provide the needed electricity for his power tools. The device consists of the following: (a) one foot-long 2x12 as its base; (b) two yard-long lengths of 2 x 4s fastened together as the upright post, which is secured to the base via a 2-inch-wide, L-shaped bracket; © two outlet boxes mortised into the front side of the upright; and (d) a large hook on the back side of the post that holds the heavy-duty electricity supply cord. Among suggestions Nieves has received are these; (a) hooks on the upright's unused sides to hold small tools; (b) wheels so that the stand can be rolled; and © a bigger base having two uprights with a cord reel mounted between them.
