Plan of the Week: Multipurpose Stand

The Chief’s Shop Multipurpose Stand requires only a drill, Kreg pocket hole jig, hole saw bit, and a miter saw (or circular saw). It can serve as a plant stand, or as a small side table where you could place a drink or small plate.

I have one similar to it in my home I made several years ago – its primary function is as a drink stand beside a chair.

Sketch of the Day: Desktop Chord Concealer

I’m building this for my desk, which I recently moved to a different location in my office.

My parents purchased this desk not long after I was born, and it came from the courthouse of the town in which I was born. I don’t want to drill holes in it, and my wife tells my I have to organize the chords from my computer, printer, scanner, lamp, etc. Yes, I could go wireless, but I’m not quite ready to for new equipment.

My solution is this.

I’ll be able to feed the chords through the hole in front and out a hole in the back (not shown). My lamp can sit on top, and I can feed its chord through the hole on top and out the hole in the back. Plus, I’ll have a small shelf for displaying various curios, etc.
