I am sloooowly getting my tool arsenal built up. This project is an example of how slow this can be at times. I had been wanting an air compressor & nailers for some time, and had been doing some homework on what “might” be the best for the amount of use that I “might” put it through. I had it narrowed down to a couple of combo packs, but just couldn’t pull the trigger. In the mean time, I found this air compressor storage design in a wood magazine last year, and built it in November ‘08. I mounted it to the wall with lag screws and washers. Its empty carcass stared at me every time I entered the garage. I kept watching the prices of the combos (bostich vs rigid). My wife came to the rescue at Christmas that year. She had undoubtedly heard enough of my debate to determine that bostich was in the lead, and man was I happy when I opened this present!
Oh yeah, back to the “project”. It is made from simple construction grade plywood and has a poplar trim around the top that also acts as a stop in case the compressor tries to walk off. The air hose storage “bracket” is made of the same plywood and is simply stacked half-moon cut outs with the outer one being larger.
Thanks for looking.
