Drill Station

After moving my shop 1,300 miles down to Florida (a task I never want to repeat), I have had to try and fit 5 pounds of stuff in a 3 pound sack at every turn.
Plus, as careful as were were, a lot of things got banged up in the process.
So, a few shop reorganization projects are in order.
This was one of the first.
There will be a few more to follow.
95% of this stuff is built from odds and ends I had in my wood pile.
Plus, shop furniture gets painted “safety blue”.
Thanks for looking.

Very clever idea. I may adapt the drill station to meet my needs.
Thanks for the start.

That will be a real good organizer for your shop and will save you a lot of time. Congratulations.

It looks like a great setup. I’ve been trying to figure something like this.

I also use that same color when I paint my shop stuff, good choice.

Looks good. I’m in the process of “finding more room” too! Doesn’t seem to matter how much room I have, I fill it up! ;0)

This is nice. Personally I’ve been living with only two drills. If I had more I’d want them organized like this.

you will need another hole or two inthere
because the impact driver is next
what about dust control for the chargers?
they don’t like dust
I have a makita li/ion and had trouble with the charger because of dust getting inside.

Eric – Funny that your shop has a “color” too. Mine is some wierd shade of green; Hazard Green? :-)

Nice organization for a go-to set of tools!
