no previous part Part 1 of Work Shop Organization series Part 2: Power Tool Storage Update »

In trying to keep my workshop organized and clutter free so I can work at my bench without having to search for tools, I found a definite need for somewhere to keep my power tools besides in their original boxes. Their original boxes keeps them organized, however, it makes them less accessible and frankly a pain in the rear to unpack and repack the tool each time it is used. Also the original boxes take up a lot of storage space when you have a confined space to work in to start with. So, I decided to build a power tools storage rack; a place where I could put all my most used power tools such as my drills, sanders, and brad gun, etc. In the attached photo, is my initial sketch of my tool rack that will fit under my tall work table. Since it is not a deep as the table, I will mount it with hinges so it can swing out revealing additional storage space behind for less used tools and items.

This may sound a bit over the top but I keep all my power and “good” hand tools in a old refrigerator. Keeps the rust off and some sort of order. Been using it for years. Turned off of course. LOL!
