112 – Drill Charging Station & DowelMax

Video - March 2, 2010

During my recent shop healing session, I realized I needed a better way to store my drills and chargers. This simple wall-hanging “box” did the trick. I also wanted to make the project fast and easy, so I decided to try out the DowelMax for the first time. The system is a breeze to use and produces strong reliable joints in just a fraction of the time it takes to create a traditional mortise and tenon.

Fee free to download the SketchUp Drawing for this project if you want to make your own. But I encourage you to use this as a starting point and build upon it. If I had more time and space, I definitely would have added a few drawers for additional storage. Also, be sure to check out the new Enduro-Var Water-Based Urethane I used on this project.

***Edit***Viewer Kevin sent us a modified Sketchup Plan featuring a beautiful drawer at the bottom.
