Ok, here is my attempt at a cordless tool station. It was partially inspired from one featured in the latest Wood magazine – Oct. 2013. I modified it to fit the amount of tools I have and more specifically, chargers. Additionally, I added a hidden area for the surge protector and cords.

The construction is mostly reclaimed oak plywood from an old entertainment center (reason for the painting) trimed with left over poplar from another project. Originally I had intended on painting the poplar, but liked the contrast once it was on there so I just left it.

I am really pleased with how it turned out. The extra storage is great to have. Hope you enjoy and get some ideas if you plan to build one.

Very nice G. Great use of space. This set up will hit the “to do” list immediately.
