How can I make this?? Help please!

So, this is probably something simple(at least I'm hoping) but I have no idea where to even start.
Can someone walk me through the process of making something like this? Name:  2015-12-03.jpg

Welcome to the forums.

It's easy! Just gather up all your materials and put them together.

Can not imagine why you would want one.
What tools do you have?
All the wood, trim, combo outlet is avalible at any home center.

Looks like a three-step pedestal with three light fixtures mounted and controlled by a single switch. The only tricky part I see is wiring the center fixture.

You can get lamp parts at any home center or hardware store...cords, switches, bulb holders, etc. Beyond that it's a matter of drilling holes and mounting the parts where you want them. Make sure the bulbs aren't close to anything flammable. Personally I'm not a big fan of home made light fixtures due to possible fire hazard and lack of safety testing; I would only recommend use of a UL listed fixture from a factory.

I just need to stand, not the lights on it. Just the outlets and box.

Can the receptacles be exposed on the back side of the box? i was thinking of mounting a power strip on the back of the box.
