I think I am getting woodworking Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Symptoms including the following:
A. Constantly thinking about new woodworking projects while at work, watching tv, working out, etc
B. Having dreams about being in the shop
C. Building more and more projects FOR the shop
D. Making any of the following: a storage box/shelf for your sawblades, router bits, brass set up bars, drill bits, and of course building a charging/storage station like the one above.
I wanted my hand tools to be close by and not have to dig them out of their storage boxes. I also wanted the air compressor to be mobile so it is on a base with wheels and a dolly handle ($10 at Harbour Freight). I basically used leftover 3/4” maple plywood from my assembly table. I made the drawers from 1/2” plywood and used stained solid maple for the fronts. I tapered the sides of the cabinet so it did not look so “boxy”. The OCD made me build little storage cubicles in the back to store the electrical cords because I could not have them hanging out the front. That would send me directly to the Psychiatrist : )
I am just being a little facetious about all of this, but these little projects are fun to build and definitely make the shop look more organized.
