Aug 02, 2020

Reorganizing my new shop space and eliminating my mobile tool storage cart created a need for a place to store my cordless tools and extra batteries.

I’ve seen many of these and have been wanting to make one so I came up with this design. It has places to hand my cordless tools, places to store extra batteries and a place to mount the chargers for the batteries.

The power strip that the battery chargers are plugged into is plugged into an outlet that has a timer that controls the power. I usually put the battery on the charger and set the timer for 2 hours or less and forget it. The timer prevents “cooking” my batteries since I’m old and sometimes forget that I have batteries charging.

The chargers are mounted on top of the cabinet in such a way that I can see the lights on the chargers.

My batteries are stored on shelves that slide out so I can easily get to them and allows me to store a lot of batteries in a compact space.

The cordless tools are hung on the bottom.

Comments and favorites welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks for looking.

I really like this compact design. It reminds me of the thought you put into your hanging wall cabinet. Nice work.

I like the size, so many hold 2 drills/impact guns, and a couple of batteries. I’d need several of them, this is reality sized. That timer idea is a good one. I’m probably guilty of cooking a few batteries.
