For Christmas I received a Milwaukee M12 driver to match the drill that I have had for a couple of years now. So as I was unloading my loot to the garage, I realized that I need a way to organize all of this stuff so it wouldn’t junk up my work surface. And here is the result… A simple organizer to hold both drills and the extra batteries. It is 1/2” birch ply for the top and sides and 3/4” birch ply for the base and a little edge banding for good measure. The drill holes are 2 1/8” and the battery holes are 1 3/4”. Overall it was a fun project to use up some scraps and get to play with the drill press, table saw, and band saw.

I just made one justlike this for my 2 little Makitas! Great minds think alike huh? I did add a few holes in the base to store driver bits.

Very cool. I wish my cordless drills would work with a setup like that. I have the Rigid set, and the battery is huge on the bottom, so I have no choice but to use the zippered bag that it came with.
