All my tools are on varying shelves and in their cases. Finding the right case and taking everything out, then putting them away takes about 5 times longer than it needs to, and my shop is so small, I’m forced to do it every time I need a tool. I finally caught a break and made this wall caddy out of scraps I had laying around (cluttering up my shop) for my drills to make things just a bit easier on the next project.

I found the idea on pinterest, but designed it around my equipment sizes. I left enough room in the charger cubbies to get my hand in there to attach and remove batteries from the chargers. The chargers are always plugged in, and everything’s always at-the-ready. I need to make time for more of these!

I cut up some oak scraps I had laying around to trim the front edge. All the plywood is dadoed together (see last pic). I could park my car on this thing.

This is a great storage piece and will be a fine addition to your shop.

Nice project. I made one as well and found as you did that it is a real time-saver to have the tools ready to go right there where you need them. I plug the surge protector into a countdown timer (up to 8hrs) so I don’t have to remember to unplug it.

That is really slick, but I don’t know if I am trainable enough to remember to always put them away, hopefully you aren’t like me in that regard.

Nice job, thanks for posting
