Picture of Portable Paracord Work Station

This is a portable work station for the growing craft of paracord. I have made numerous bracelets, collars, and other crafts all while working out of a central location. This box holds numerous colors of paracord, tools, and an assortment of buckles. I have worked with paracord for almost a year and a half and in that time I have made this box to help organize my materials. I quickly realized as i became more consumed by this craft that i would need a storage device to hold my equipment. This box has grown to this point and may grow larger in the future. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial and I also hope that it may influence you to try a new craft for yourself.

Materials:

Step 2: Tools

Tools:
-Power Drill
-1/4 Drill Bit
-Pencil
-Ruler
-PVC Pipe Cutters

Step 3: Storage

Picture of Storage
There are multiple ways to store the paracord, I will show three examples. If you want to use different methods feel free to make your own choices or suggestions. All of the storage devices I use are cost effective, and recyclable. Not to mention you can quench your thirst with the Gatorade.

Storage Options:
-The PVC Pipe works well for 100'-50' of cord
-The bottles work well for 50'-25' of cord
-Plastic bags work well for 25' or less of cord

Thank you for sharing your creativity. When you're loading cord onto the pvc pipe, are you using your drill to power-spin the pipe, or are you turning the pipe by hand?

i turn by hand but i never thought to use the drill but that seems a bit dangerous if you do attemp be careful its harder naking knotswith only three fingers
Thank you. Your caution is most appropriate. Good luck.

This is a great idea, it looks like it makes it much easier to keep things organized and untangled!
