I built this drill charging station using some scrap pine. It gets my drills and chargers off the work bench and out of the way. It’s attached to the wall using a French cleat across the back. The chargers are plugged into a power strip on the back side. I’ve seen suggestions about connecting the chargers to a timer that automatically turns on the chargers for an hour a day to keep the batteries charged, so I’m gonna try that. I think I’ll make another one for the rest of my drills…LOL

I like the idea. How did you attach the chargers to the bottom of the shelf?

Those B&D firestorm chargers have a hole through the middle for mounting to the wall, so I just used a drywall screw. I would probably try velcro if they didn’t have the mounting holes.
