Here’s a simple cabinet I built to gather and store hand held power tools. I started by making a naïve sketch using MS Paint and used material readily available in my shop. The two adjustable shelves are and will be very handy. It was fun to build and I really like the results. Do you ?

See all the construction details and more photos from this page of my blog.

It’s a nice addition to your workshop and very practical.

Great job, Serge. I like the design as well as the use of materials already lying around in your shop.

Looks great, but you need to make sure your drills and routers don’t sleep in the same cabinet. Oops, too late. Those things multiply like rabbits!

Thank you all for your comments.

@choppertoo: Rabbits? Hillarious!



PS: Now that you saw the tools, let’s bring them back to the rental store! :-)
