Introduction

I need a Earphones Cord Organizer, so I try to buy one from the market.

However, I think most of the cord organizers are not good for my Earphone.

It make my earphone cord winded and is difficult to straighten it before listening to the music.

As a result, I make one....

This is the first version I made.
I use a piece of PVC tubing and drill some holes as the photo.
The earphone can insert to both end and the cable is winded in a slightly "straight" way.
( * BTW, I drill a small hole and make it as "Keychain"...)

The length of the PVC is tailor made according to my earphones' cable length.

This version sound pretty good, but it seems not suitable for earphone with unequal cord length...

Step 2: Version 2 : Earphones Cord Organizer for unequal cord length...

As a result, I made the following version 2...

U can place the earphone in one of the holes, so, it can solve the problem of unequal earphone cord length.

Step 3: Final Version : Earphones Cord Organizer

This is the design which  I want to share with u !

Both earphones Cord Organizers working well but I think the cord should winded in a circle way in order to minimize the damage of earphone.

So, I make this stylish ultimate version of "Earphones Cord Organizer" !!

Step 4: STEP 1. Shorten the legs of the tripod

This is great. I love how you took something as disposable and useless as pizza box tripods and made them into something useful. Nicely done.
My favorite kind of Instructable -- fast, easy, from recycled stuff found around the house. Good job!
Awesome tips! I've always wondered what I could make with those little pizza tables, and you just answered that question for me. Great job!

I used one to make a stand for my phone. I think I saw it on Lifehacker, but they just used the pizza box standoff as it came. I cut down two of the legs and used the pieces I cut off to reinforce the remaining leg (which would have to support the weight of my phone). Then I glued a piece of plastic from the center of a CD to the bottom for rigidity. It was able to hold my phone in landscape orientation, but not portrait—it would tip over backward.

I used acrylic (waste from some projects) to make my phone stand.
Although the stand is design for model "Xperia mini", it also fit to my "Xperia S"
both in landscape and portrait orientation.
