Hey all,

I have been frustrated for some time now with the shape my shop is in. There is stuff laying everywhere, and I can never seem to find what I am looking for. It started off with pencils, pens, rulers, you know small things, then it started growing. Here lately I have been missing my drills, batteries, chargers, and things like that. Well, today in the shop I took care of some of the mess and I made this to organize my two cordless drills and the impact driver.

Of course, getting this done took time away from the entertainment center, but the entertainment center is experiencing budget issues right now and I had the scrap lumber laying around to get this done. No cost means it will probably get done right now.

Like the idea of the chargers and drills in the same place. I need to make something like this for my shop.

Thanks for the idea.

It looks like you have room for another drill!

It does have a little expansion room. I made this thing as a quick and dirty project. I cut the pieces to width, but did not create more wood waste by cutting any length off of the boards. I figure I will eventually find something else to go up there.
