Step 8: Making Cable Organizer

Next, I took a piece of scrap 2"x2" about 12" long to make two cable organizers. I drew out the side profile of the cable organizer on the end grain of the shape and marked out the materials that will be removed. I made the cuts using my table saw. For something like this, it really shows the importance of using the Microjig Gripper. With the legs supporting the piece, it's very stable no matter what angle I made the cuts. Click here to buy.

After the final shape of the cable organizer has been made, I marked out the locations of the notches for holding the cable. The pitch between the gaps are roughly 3/4". I also had to make multiple passes at each mark, adjusting the fence with each pass in order to make a gap wide enough to receive the cable. Finally, I cut the 12" long piece into two for my two separate organizers.
