I have been reorganizing my shop this summer. One of the goals was to organize my corded tools. All of them used to reside behind a door in the bottom of a cabinet. Disentangling cords to actually remove a tool and use it was painful.
I designed this cabinet to make all the tools easily accessible and organize the cords so they didn’t get tangled. You’ll notice 6 corded hand drills. Most of them I inherited over the years. I am particularly happy with the way they work in the organizer. Grab the handle, pull out the drill and then pull the cord from its cubby-hole.
Construction was simple: 3/4” plywood for the sides and shelves, dadoed, glued and nailed. The cord cubby-holes are all separated by 1/4” plywood, dadoed into the shelves and glued. I added a 1/2” plywood back in rabbets and screwed it directly to the open studs in my garage.
