For the power strip, search amazon (or whatever you prefer) for recessed power strip. There are a lot of styles and options.
 

The vertical post is two pieces of wood glued together. Before gluing them together, a channel was cut down the center to give space for the power cord, then a hole is cut through the face of one of the boards to insert the power strip into.  You could also use 4 thinner boards to make a hollow post, but then you either have to make long mitered corners or have the endgrain showing on some of the sides.

thank you so much that is what i have been toggling between doing a hollow post or cutting the channel .. it was more of finding the power strip but thank you for leading me in the right direction.

Good luck! The OP isn’t around now, but there are many skilled and knowledgeable people here if you have further questions about this project or others.
