I wanted a way to keep my Apple earbuds from tangling when I want to store them, whether in my pocket or on my nightstand. There are a number of recent Instructables that show how to wind the cord on one's fingers and bind the earbuds without a separate fixture. I want to avoid any sharp bends or twists that may cause the wire to break down with use over time.
The photo shows my version ready to use.
- Jack plane
- Drill press and bit
- Belt or drum sander
