awesome,I wish i could have that my house.
That's really cool - do you have the specs on that? I think my manboy would find it really useful
This is indeed proving very popular with the Workshop community @Wayne. If you could share some information about how you made it with the community it would be much appreciated. Thanks again for sharing.
Unfortunately I didn't take a whole of pics when I made the Cordless Drill Storage/Charging Station.The most difficult part was configuring and making the drill holders, I took the measurements of all my drills and particularly the largest bodied one, both the width and the height.The "holder" pieces are 260mm in length and 65mm wide, I used a spray paint can as a template to draw the circular front then cut them out on the band saw, 5 in total then cut 1 in half lengthways to become the outer pieces. The uprights measure 235mm x 70mm and these are glued and screwed to the holders and also the base section of the box structure. I used a 1/4" "roundover" bit and rounded off most of the edges on my router table. All of the stock used was either 19mm Pine or 19mm veneered MDF sheet cut to size.I used this picture (found on https://au.pinterest.com/) of somebody elses creation as my guide and inspiration and the shelf concept is almost the same, a bottom shelf then an angled shelf to hold the chargers using some triangular cut pieces as the bracket supports. The angled shelf measures 220mm D x 520mm W and the flat shelf measures 290mm D x 520mm W, the angled shelf does not go all the way to the back, it is left open so that cords can be hidden behind it.The side panels measure 300mm deep x 390mm high, there is a back panel which is 140mm x 19mm pine and also just a decorator front panel. The whole thing is glued and bradded or screwed.I mounted a Power Board (with individual switching) on the back panel, that way I can leave the power on and just switch on/off the particular charging unit I want to use.I never got around to give it a fine sanding and a coat of clear poly which is a shame because it would have come up a treat if I had. I hope this helps anyone wanting to make their own Cordless Drill Charging Station.
what a great idea. I will use this when I fit out my workshop
Here's an alternative design to @Wayne's fantastic D.I.Y. drill station.
There is a video on the Bunnings site on how to build a charging station. Brilliant idea and simple project.

Visitors to this popular project might also be interested in a new cordless drill charging station that @Wayne has built. You can see photos here - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Getting-Started/Another-Cordless-Drill-Storage-Station/m-p/16237
Awesome!! I like it. I built one similar this that I found here. Just follow the link to have a look. It comes with a video and diagrams but hey are in imperial measurements but I create a metric conversion cutting list if anyone is interested. I :bigsmile: still have the drawer to make.
Great, many thanks for sharing. Let us know how you go with the drawer.

Love your drill storage unit. I was tempted to make one out of PVC but after seeing this I think I might go with some scraps I have laying around my she-shed.
What a great idea!!!
