When doing work away from my shop, I like having cases to organize everything. In the shop is a different story. I got tired of trying to keep up with all the cordless drills and chargers I have collected over the years, so I came up with these two cabinets to take care of that. I love being able see what I need, and grab it quickly.
The charger cabinet is—-You guessed it——————Mable and Bubinga (Hi Larry) I did the angled dados with
the dado jig I previously posted. I color-coded the chargers and the plugs so I can readily plug in the chargers I need at the time.The drill rack is oak and a little bubinga trim. Some of the holes for the drills were custom drilled to fit specific drills.

Thanks for looking,

Kent, I wish that my projects would turn out 1/2 as nice as your jigs and shop fixtures.
