I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

DIY Cable Management

I have several totes worth of computer cables and parts in the closet, but the stuff that I use all the time sits in the cabinet under my credenza. Unfortunately, every time I reach for a USB cable I have to untangle it from the rats’ nest that’s under there.

Looks like it’s time for some DIY cable management.


I started out with a box and cut it down to size.


I then wrapped it in black poster board.


I’ve been saving toilet rolls for a good 3 months. I hot glued them into place.


Everything is so much more organized now. All my cables are now easily accessible. With the plugs sticking up, I can quickly identify the cable that I need. Having them in toilet rolls also eliminates the need for a twisty tie.


Ah! So much better!
