Wow, how’s that for a clickbaity title? To make up for it, this post is short and to the point. Add power sockets underneath your desk.
I kept running into problems with some of my tools that have annoyingly short cables, and the primary example of this is my glue gun, which has a 1 meter power cable. That’s really not a whole lot. Every time I wanted to use it, I had to find an extension cord and then connect that, and every time I was finished I had twice the clean-up work.
So here’s what I did:
I didn’t have time to hide the cable better, but I think you can all see how convenient it is to have a series of sockets right underneath the desk. I no longer have to use tools or hold materials awkwardly, and this one change to my workspace is going to save me a lot of time down the road.
