I posted this not because it was a wonderful creation but to maybe give others ideas about there storage issues.

Recently I have been working hard at cleaning and organizing my shop due to it was a huge mess and I could not move freely from one end to the other without stepping over or around something. I made this cabinet for my drills and clamps and it has made a huge difference. I used the plans from Jays Custom Creations as a base.

I made it taller and wider and I am very happy that I did. I also made two of the shelves adjustable rather than fixed. It can now hold both of my drills and two of my nail guns. I added holders on the sides to hold my pipe clamps and bar clamps. Instead of using the bottom for screws as per Jays plans I used it to hold more clamps.

I did not take any pictures during the build so what you get to see is the almost full cabinet. I am still working on cleaning and organizing so any additional pictures of the shop are going to wait.

Good work … yes, proper storage makes all the difference in the world!

Nice build..I am doing the same with my garage/shop..It is slow going as I am on my first wall (painting, adding French cleat system)..too many space eater items and no room to work..I have made my version of the charging station as well and it was the selection of the spot to mount it that prompted the makeover..I will add it to my project list once mounted.
