I needed a way to store and charge my cordless drills without using too much bench or wall space. This storage/charging station is based on a project in ShopNotes Magazine (#58) and other examples from this site. The case is made from 3/4” oak plywood scraps and solid oak edging. The case measures 21.5” w X 19”h x 11.25” d. The case was assembled with biscuits and glue and brads. The second picture shows the storage shelf after drilling out the holes for the drill slots. Picture 3 is the shelf while cutting out the waste material with a jigsaw. Picture 4 is the finished case without the drawer. I added a large storage drawer to hold drill bits and drivers. The chargers sit on the shelf below the drills. The case has a french cleat for wall hanging or it can sit on one of my workbenches. There is a power strip on the back to help control all of the power cords.
