Tool Shelf

Keeping power tools organized and within easy reach in my shop used to be a hassle. They were usually scattered around the shop or in a messy pile on my bench. To solve these problems, I built a handy shelf. Besides providing storage, this tool shelf solves another nagging problem as well — it keeps the power cords from getting tangled up like spaghetti. Each power cord fits in a separate compartment directly below the tool, as you can see in the photo.

These compartments are formed by a number of dividers that are sandwiched between a top and bottom, as shown in the drawing at right. The location of the dividers is determined by the amount of space each tool requires.

  1. I'm moving my workshop to my garage as that will now be my little (a redesigned) flatlet for us. (wife and me). So it will be a redesign job for me of a new w/s as well and this little goody will really be handy. However, I will add a cupboard to that (install it in an old kitchen cupboard) to keep the dust out.
