I have been looking at projects on this site for a while and have countless ones in my Favorites list to complete, but I thought I would tackle this one first since my wife was in my shop looking for my cordless drills and could not find them when they were right on one of my work benches behind some clutter. I need to hide my key to my shop in a different place.

I have a lot of scrap pieces, so I am using some of that on this project, it is not pretty but very useful and fits right on my work bench. Thanks to the other guys who I so graciously copied from on this design.

As nice as the charging station is, I see a MAJOR problem with it…..
There are 3 open slots!!!
You need to fill those ASAP!!!
Just tell SWMBO that the Collective Intellect of LJs said so!!!

It will be handy for my wife and kids when they borrow my stuff, now they know right where they go when they are done with them.

It’s always great to find a useful project to use those pesky scraps on. I’ve seen a lot of these charging stations lately. Most of them have the drills and drivers suspended like yours does. Is there a reason for keeping them suspended?

No reason for the suspended drills, some guys put another storage shelf on the bottom. I think just easier to grab and there is a specific place for the drills rather than just on a shelf, but that is just my opinion.

It’s a nice shop station and a wonderful addition to your shop.

Nice. I wish I would’ve thought to do the top of mine like yours. I don’t have anything to stop my charging bases from falling off. Good job.

Great job on that functional build. I’m sure it will serve your family well, getting those drills accessible and organized as well.

Have your say...
