I Don't Usually Post Retractions...

...but I do post about retracting cords.  Our garage is sorely lacking in outlets, especially near the work bench.  I had been meaning to run an extension cord over there, but never got around to it.  Through somewhat strange circumstances we came into possession of a retracting extension cord reel.  It was just what we needed.
I wanted to hang it a little below the rafters so it wouldn't hit any of the junk we have up there, so I grabbed a piece of scrap wood.

After a little customizing, and some stainless steel screws, it was mounted.  I ran an extension cord to it and I was done.  This is the best kind of project--cheap, quick, and very useful.
