Thanks to WWMM I got this project finished. Fortunately I have (and can get more) wormy chestnut paneling that was a great size for this. Beware…you may have to get the right power supply first and then build around it. The finish is wipe on poly. Thought I would show what most everybody’s cord drawer looks like.

Looks good, well organized compared to the junk drawer approach. I have one question. How much airflow gets through the back? If it is open, should be okay. I have a friend that made his closed in the back and the temps got hot enough they left hot spots in the finish. To correct the problem he made a vent on one side and put a small diamter computer fan on the opposite side.

As you can see by the location, I chose not to put a back on it for ease of getting in and out, but also to allow total air flow. If you don’t need a back, don’t put one on. I still have to wonder though how much people are plugging up in order to get these things hot?

All things considered I doubt many read the instructions when they get battery powered tools. Lithium runs warm when charging, note the Dreamliner 787 issues as of late. I have also noticed many people put them in a charger every night which is overkill. Not a problem in the cold, but in warmer times this is an issue. In Iraq we had to keep batteries and charging batteries in a temp controlled connex to prevent explosions. Despite this care the tool was used in 120 plus heat and we had a few accidents. I like your layout and made a drawing for one for the shop this evening. Now where to make room to put it in the shop will take me a few days. I need more room! Sound familiar? (Laughing)

Like the design, simple but really functional, handy and gets all the gadgets and chargers organized. Well done!
