This is my latest project for my workshop. The design is based off project by LJ HickoryHill found here. The design of the drill shelf was based on ShopNotes Issue 58 along with the design of the drawer.

The case is made out of 3/4” plywood. The drawer is made out of 1/2” plywood with a 1/4” plywood bottom. The handle is made from walnut. The top shelf is hinged to allow for access to the power strip. The cabinet is attached to the wall via a French cleat.

The pictures are as follows: – Pictures 1 & 2: Overall Cabinet – Picture 3: Accessory Drawer – Picture 4: Walnut Handle – Picture 5: Hidden Power Strip to feed the chargers – Picture 6: Gluing up the case; you can never have enough clamps!!

Thanks for reading.

Very nice scarpenter002’s. I definitely need something like that. I like that the cordless drills are easily accessible with a drawer for accessories. Thanks for the post. Unfortunately I don’t have that SHOPNOTES issue but I’m sure there are plans in my other books.

Great functional center! I especially like the hinged top that conceals the power strip and keeps cords under control. Right now I have a slotted holder spanned between two open wall studs in my tiny shop. This has now moved to the top of my list!
