split recptacle w/duplex recptacle to 3way switch HELP


I'm in dire need of some advice with this circuit. From the power(14/2) to a split receptacle to another split receptacle (via 14/3) to a 3way switch (via 14/3) to a duplex receptacle (via 14/3) and ending at a 3way switch (via 14/3). Any help would be great, a diagram would be excellent. Thanks!

If the second three way is the mate to the first one you can't do it. You don't have enough wires after the first three way. You need four wires if you want that receptacle between the switches.

Thanks joed, but can I use my third receptacle(duplex) as a split receptacle instead then?

You can not use the receptacle between the switches. You can't have anything in that junction box between the switches. You don't have a neutral wire.
Here's an image with lights. You can just substitute receptacles.
