This is my take on the cordless drill charging and storage station. I’ve seen several different styles here on Lumberjocks so I kinda threw them all together and designed a couple of different stations in Sketchup. One small and one big. I built the larger one out of 23/32” plywood and 1 5/8” screws.

You can download the sketchup files for free on my website at:

You can also watch a video of me building it here:

Truckrun,
A nice simple solution to storing batteries and drills. I have a mess with mine right now, but I like your design.

I need one of these so bad! Mine are a bundle of cords and a mess.
Good one.

Is that Norm`s New Yankee workshop workbench it’s sitting on? Nice work! What does the narrow shelf on the side hold? Looks like a good place for a recip saw or something like that. Great ideas!

Thanks everybody!

coachbryan, yes it is the New Yankee Workshop workbench. That was my first big project of 2013. I bought the NYW book and just went for it. I used pine instead of oak to keep the costs down. The narrow shelf on the side is for my industrial sized glue gun. If you watch the video through to the end I mention it and pull it out really quick.

That’s a good looking and useful build. It stores and organizes well those drills and batteries and additional storage to boot. Well done!

Have your say...
