Here was an easy project that I did recently; a battery organizer. I found this plan on the wood magazine website. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always check out my website at: to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.

I also put up a listing of free project plans that you might find useful.

Neat project and great video – I’m sure just about anyone could use one of these. I must say, however, that I was cringing watching you crosscut with the miter gauge and rip fence at the same time – a recipe for a major kickback. Check out some of the crosscut sled projects on here and you will be much safer performing those kinds of cuts!

I don’t have an issue with the crosscuts from a safety standpoint. Although he used the fence as a guide, he pushed it through with his hand, which makes it no different than a normal rip cut. Had he not pushed it through his his right hand and just left it come off the blade by itself, that would be a real problem.

I like this project a lot…I’m always digging in a Rubbermaid container to find batteries. Thanks for sharing it!
