Power Hand Tool Storage Cabinet

Had an open space on the wall that has been begging to be used. In a small shop like mine, one cant afford to waste space so I started thinking on what I could use it for. I had hand power tools without storage cases scattered in various places in the shop and decided it would be nice to have a place to store them together. I had also had a desire to try out a french cleat wall mount so this is what I came up with. Now I just gotta figure out how to get my wife to let me fill those empty spaces in it….lol

Thanks Jeff….. so far I am impressed with how well they work. And being able to take that cabinet down if need be…priceless…lol Think I am gonna make me some holders for my longer clamps so I can hang them on that extra two feet of cleat.

Great job and a good looking cabinet. French cleats are the way to go. I like the idea of such storage space in the door. Lots of stuff in this small square footage. Thanks for posting.

Best,

Serge

Thanks Marty…. I killed my favorite 3/8” drill while drilling the holes for the toggle bolts….just hoping if I drop enough hints, she will replace that…lol You ever get that bench finished?? I scored some 12’ 2×8’s that were gonna be landfield fodder the other day. Can see a lathe stand in them….maybe. you should come up here and show me how to coax it out of them.

Storage is always essential. Good job.

i finished the bench,been meaning to post some photo’s of it.

buster you wouldn’t want a stand i made.i wish i could come across some free wood/landfill fodder.i still need to finish a couple more mobile bases,so i dismantled some projects that didn’t turn out so great and i’m gonna use them.

now i’ve tried dropping hints to my wife like i want this saw or tool and she’ll always say i just don’t know what to get you.some days i just want to stay in bed with the sheet over my head.lol.

I know that aint right Marty…seen some of your work and would proudly mount that lathe on a stand you built. It would not have to be very sturdy seeing as I never have used it so you wouldnt even have to try very hard…lol But its on my todo list someday….lol. I make sure and point things out to my wife when I see them in a magazine or online. She is sweetheart, she always looks even though she could care less. I have found that the secret is repetition….I must have mentioned dust collector a couple of thousand times.

Nice work, nothing like taking advantage of unused space and getting things organized.
