« Part 7: Drawer fronts Part 8 of Charging Station series no next part

There’s just a few things left to finish-up and I’ll have a functional charging station.

To install the tool hanger, I placed a 3” spacer between it and the top, and screwed the hanger in place through the pocket holes on the underside.

I used some double-sided tape to hold the drawer fronts in place temporarily so I could install screws from inside the drawer box.

To prevent the drills and drivers from tearing-up the back of the case, I cut a strip of rubber floor mat and wedged it in place at the top.

All that remains is to attach the chargers, but I’m re-thinking my approach there. And then to figure out just where to hang it. I’ll have one more post when that’s all sorted.

Though it is just shop furniture, I really like the “make it classy” approach. The blacked out areas have a good contrast with the lighter wood.

I also like the gentle curve, blacked out pulls.

Thanks, gents.

This is why I’m re-thinking where to mount the chargers. It seems a shame to bolt-on a couple of big warts on the side.
