Keep your cordless drills organized with a drill driver station
Reader A. Malcolm Sturm inspired this useful hangout for cordless drill-drivers. It stores them near their chargers so you won’t forget to charge them, and keeps them close at hand and ready to go. Best of all, with their own little eagle’s nest, your drill-drivers will always be where you can find them.
To make one, rip 3/4-in. plywood into 8-1/2-in.- wide strips. Make your drill-driver station wide enough to hold all your drivers. Cut slots in the lower shelf to fit the driver handles, then glue and nail the station together. Screw the station to a wall near an electrical outlet.
