Not much to it really. Function over Fancy
This shows the precision that went into making the floor base mount using your 2x4s, 90* metal bits and worm clamps
get your cutting tool of choice and cut to whatever length needed to keep the extension pole from moving around
use your favorite finger caliper to get the pole sleeve nice n center
Shoot some wire on it
Hang up your gear
grab a clamp, position where is convenient and give that clamp a good twist er 2
Now your workbench has a fair amount of light and can position where is going to work the best.
I had all this stuff laying around the garage, what i used could be considered bottom of the barrel.. Surely there is far better ideas and materials to be used. but this will do what i need it to for years to come.
i was hoping to at least get a "what the" or a good chuckle out of someone.. the things that manage to accumulate in my garage even makes me wonder sometimes.
