Not for the Vertically Challenged

I am a BIG guy at 6’7” and 300 pounds my friends all call me Wookie, maybe it’s time for a shave. I had these drill mounts on the wall but they were taking up just to much wall space. I decided that moving them to the center of the room above the bench would make them more accessible. This works great for me but if you are vertically challenged it might be very inconvenient as the drills are 8 feet up, but for me they are within easy reach.

How come you have so many drills?

I find after I shave I lose 25% of my manliness. So I would never recommend shaving. Ever.

God made men with beards. Coincidence?

I think not. Just look at Jesus.

Beardliness is close to godliness.

Well done, Finally someone as bad as me when it comes to drills. My friends think I have a sickness when they see how many of them I have. LOL

Own stock in DeWalt? Nice set-up. I kept thinking I had too many drills but then I see others and realize I’m under-stocked.

I think drills are like clamps you can never have enough. My father and me have been buying Dewalt for years when we were doing construction back in Alabama. I no longer do construction but go to swap meets and yard sales and see one at a good price and have to have it.

Nice solution for your tools. Just think, the neighbor or visitor can’t freely use your tools, so their safe if you hide the step ladder.

I specialize in making custom canes for people and many of my clients are over 6’ tall, but I think the tallest I’ve worked with so far is 6’4” so you, my friend are extraordinary!

6’9” – I LOVE YOUR IDEA!!!!!.....imagine that.
However I hit my head on parts of my garage already so this would be a real scalp scraper.
Nice build anyway.
