To determine the width of the pipe slot for your drill dock organizer, use a clamp to measure the width of the tool handle.
2. Mark the SlotFamily Handyman
Transfer the handle width to the pipe and mark out the slot. Make the slot about 1/8 in. wider than the tool handle. The length of the slot isn’t critical; 5 in. is about right for most drills. This is where your drills will dock.

A fine-tooth jigsaw blade, such as a metal-cutting blade, is best. After cutting, ease the sharp edges with a file or sandpaper.
