Finally got around to making one if these. Mainly produced from scrap plywood and MDF laying around the shop, I figured it was a great first project for the French cleats that I hung earlier in the year. This station holds both sets of the Rigid drill/driver combo packs that we bought back in September. The cool thing about the French cleats is that there is now enough room to tuck the power cords behind the shelf. the 2 drawers are going to help keep the random drill bits and driver heads slightly more organized. I hope. The shelf on top allows for sets of bits to have a home.

Thanks for looking! Feel free to leave any comments, questions, concerns, or complaints.

Nice Charging station Tooch! It’s great when your batteries are always ready to go when you need one. Well done!

Tooch, looks like you thought this one out and have made an effective design. Nice job. Effective shop organization always increases satisfaction and productivity. To me, nothing is more frustrating or a bigger waste of time than looking around the shop for a tool or not having a charged battery when you need to use a tool.

I noticed you used a dado into the drawer fronts for the attachment. Any particular reason for that or just preference?
