My brother in law asked me if I would build him a cordless drill/driver station to hang on the wall in his basement. I said sure, just send me a picture of what you want. Well he found one online and sent it to me. Pretty straight forward build but then he messed up and said it didn’t have to be exactly like the pic. Wrong thing to tell a wannabe woodworker….lol He dropped the materials off and let me have at it. This is what I came up with. Looks nothing like the picture he sent…maybe he won’t like it and I will be forced to use it myself….it’s a little nicer than my PVC one…lol

Well, if he doesn’t like it – I’m with you I’d keep it and do another one. <grin> Did you use ply or solid wood for the back?

Looks good with plenty of space on top for batteries, chargers and more dust.
Well done.

Nice thinking Buster, good work. Looks nicer than some of the shelving in my house. If he doesn’t like it give him your old one and call it a day.
You did however give me an idea with the pvc one.

Ron- thank you sir. It is 3/4” hardwood plywood I had left over from another project. Solid wood would have worked just as well I think.

Ike- Thank you sir. Pretty sure the original design was wood magazine and it showed the battery chargers and bit sets stored on it so I stuck with that….sorta…lol

Dave- Thank you buddy. I sorta like the PVC one…its expandable… Lol I seriously doubt the whole “nicer than some of the shelving in my house” thing….lol you are the man Dave!!!

He is going to love it Buster so I guess you are out of luck buddy. By the way, isn’t ”improvisation” woodworkers middle name?

Another fine job by BusterB! Can’t imagine him not wanting that unit. A fine looking setup. By the looks of the projects you’ve been putting out I think it’s time you drop the “wannabe” title. Keep up the good work buddy.

L2L- thank you sir. I am a big fan of improvising… Mostly because the original idea for how something will work doesn’t work out..lol

Jeff- thank you my friend. I think I have a career change that would be perfect for you buddy. You can be one of those motivational speakers. Everyone wants a friend like you!!!! Lol

Todd- thank you cedar king. I bet if you modified it a bit, you could adapt it to work in your shop…of course it would have to be built outta 3 inch thick cedar slabs…lol still waxing on that 20” planer? Bet you slept in shop last night so you could stare at that beast… Lol

Buster, that’s a mighty nice tool holder you’ve built! Looks really beefy, 4/4 stock? Nothing wrong with your version(PVC). It is a whole lot easier to expand, as you said! Thanks for sharing.

Here I was trying to be nice, it’s a strain, and you call me names! :-b

How’s this: Pardon me, Mister BusterB…could you be so kind as to elaborate upon the dimensions of said lumber employed in this construction?

Yer welcome!

Candy- with all due respect to my favorite nurse/woodworker…sure gotta feel sorry for poor ole mudflap…lol
I was certain you were referencing certain recently over engineered projects of mine….if I misread that, I apologize from the bottom of my teeny tiny heart…ROFL.
Its constructed out of big box store 1×8 so its actually 7 1/4” deep plus the 3/4” plywood back. Overall the project is 17 1/2” tall and 23” wide. The tool slits are 1 1/2” wide and 5” deep. The slots are on 3 1/2” centers and the dowels are 3/8ths diameter. Hope that clarifies my earlier mistake….lol still snickering BTW…. ;)
