This is a night stand I built a while ago. I made it with a compartment in the back with a power strip in it. And the cord for the strip runs down the leg through a groove. It makes it’s bit of a bother to move, but I haven’t had to pull the bed out to plug anything in. It has worked out pretty well for me. But if I could change one thing I would make the lid for the power strip compartment in two sections, because it seems that the back of the top is where everything seems to live. And if I want to get my phone charger out I need to slacken the lamp cord and move it.
It’s made out of birch ply, poplar trim, and stained with a red mahogany

That’s really nice. I’m going to have to save that. I like the idea of the power strip. I’m going to have figure out how to work that into a project.

Thank you.

Clever idea. I know what you mean about moving the bed to get to the outlet.

The wall outlet is behind my bed, so it I wanted to get to something that was plugged in I needed to pull the bed out to reach the outlet. I know there are a whole lot of easier solutions. but sometimes it is fun to over complicate things.

Have your say...
