When i moved into the basement from the shed, I knew I needed to conserve space. So from the start I have been pulling out all the magazines, the books, and the online articles I have read on space saving options. Most of the ones I have liked have come from you fine individuals here at LJ’s.

Here is my biggest one so far. I needed a place to store my 2 drills, hammer drill, and impact driver. That was out of the way, but close at hand. I also wanted my chargers near as well. I saw one on this site made by “oldskoolmodder” that I used as my bases for mine just with some adaptations.

I also decided this would be a good project to test out some new joinery skills. Best place to learn is on something no one else will pay attention too, ie. shop furniture and fixtures.

I used 4/4 poplar that I joined by hand cutting 1/2 box joints…(note to self, build a jig!) I mortised and tenoned a cross support that I attached a 3/8” plywood shelf too, to hold all my lille drill bit cases. I also used 4 6” pieces of PVC pipe angled down from front to back to holster my drills. I finished it with a few coats of stain and poly for finishing practice.

All in all I am very pleased with how it turned out. I learned alot about joinery and how to fix gaps on a stained piece. And best of all I never have to run around the shop looking for that elusive drill bit.
