About: Hello, my name is Sean. I am 17 years old and in the middle of a hellish junior year of high school.

Today you will see how to make a simple wire organizer for cheap, dirt cheap.
1- I made a very cheap, safe, and easy to build wire organizer. The way it works is simple, you wrap a wire around a piece of pvc pipe and 2 t connecters to wrap wire around.
2-I got the idea to build the wire organizer from having a pesky microphone chord laying around (which was very long).  I did this project by myself (I am 14). My plans stayed the same throughout the design and build process.
3-I made this project in my house, all the materials are probably already in your house. This connects to other activites in my life by helping out a friend that has way to many wires behind his desk.
4-I learned that wires can be a big pain in many people's lives, that is why I decided to build something that people of all ages can use. If I had to repeat this project I would've used a thinner pvc pipe. 

Step 1: Materials

For this 5 minute project you will need a drill, 2 screws, a screwdriver, 2 T pvc pipe connecters, a piece of pvc pipe. (Everything is of your choice- length, width, height, screws, also dont forget to ask your parent for permission first.) 

Step 2: Assemble

Here you want to put the 2 T connectors on the ends of the pvc pipe. Make sure they fit well and a little tight. 

Step 3: Drill and Screw

Here you want to take a drill and drill a hole through the T connector and the pipe, make sure the screw fits in the hole.

Step 4: Finished

Finally find some of your pesky wires and tame them!

    Well done instructable. Never thought of using those for storing cords, but it does make sense. Is there any reason you used the screws instead of PVC glue/cement?

    Personal I dont really mind the screws, but I dont really have the glue/ cement. The screws dont get in your way so either way it works the same.
