I made this Cordless Tool Charging Station to hold all of my cordless tools. It’s made from a single 2’x4’ sheet of 3/4” plywood.

I ripped the plywood into one 16”x48” piece and cut that into the shelves I needed at different depths. I customized each shelf to hold the tools. I cut a slot for the circ saw, slots for the drills, and a cutout in the back of the charger shelf for the power cords to pass through.

I ripped the leftover ~8”x48” piece of plywood into two ~4”x48” wide strips for the sides and screwed it together. The top was just calling for a brace with my logo on it cut with the Inventables X-Carve, which is a good example of why I like having the CNC in the shop – personalized projects!

I like how I can see and access the tools from the sides and front, instead of them sitting inside a deep dark cubbyhole shelf unit. It looks more like a store display this way. It cost less than $20 and took only a couple of hours to make.

Nice. The charger storage declutters a lot. Nice job & perfect app for plywood.

Nice work, Steve. I’ve been trying to find time to make one of these for at school… glad I didn’t yet because I really like your idea of mounting the battery chargers underneath in order to double capacity.
