With the right tools and expertise, you can turn PVC fittings into an extension cord reel. This project is not for everyone but it sure is fun to watch.

First, cut the edge of the PVC fittings. Drill into the ends of the PVC fittings to make the holes larger. Connect the PVC fittings to make a three-legged device. Drill a hole in the middle of the three-legged device. 

Draw two circles in a large black thin piece of wood. Cut the circles up and drill a hole in the middle of each one. Take a circular fitting and stick a rod through it. Place the two wooden circles through the rod on each end of the circular fitting.

Drill three holes in each wooden circle to screw them into place. Put the rod on one end inside the hole on the three-legged device. Secure into place and make sure it swivels around.

On the other wooden circle screw in the end of an extension cord reel. Take the cord and wrap it around the circular fitting. You now have an extension cord reel made out of PVC fittings that spins out more cord when you need it!
