I was cleaning up around the office yesterday and had a brain storm for the cables I use for PC’s that I repair.
It was usually a rats nest of cables, which I was really tired of, so I came up with this solution
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Some Simple Woodworking
I first cut the 2" x 12" piece, then cut it in half length wise.
I then drilled and counter sunk 1/8" holes in the side piece 1a.
Then using 1 1/2 all purpose screws I put 1a & 1b back together.
I then cut 6 1/4" holes for the cables and cut dado that matched my side board (2) and top board (3)
Once that was done I glued and nailed 2 & 3 to 1b, be sure to take off part 1a. I didn't and had to cut it off.
I added corner blocks 4a and 4b to help support the joint between parts 2 and 3.
Once the glue has set you can paint it what ever color you want. I had some blue laying around so....
Step 2: Lay in the Cables
Once your paint is dry and set just lay in the cables and screw 1a to 1b.
Be sure not tie off or hinder the cables,
I was going to add some Velcro to the side but it says in place all by itself.
