Tool Storage and Charging Station

After several months of moving tools back and forth, I decided I needed to build a permanent home for my Ryobi tools. After searching online for plans, I couldn't find one that fit my exact needs or that I really liked. I combined several features from a few different ones I found online and ensured to make it large enough to fit my tools. However, I've acquired more tools since completing this so I will have to either add onto it or make a larger one. Its great to hold power tools, batteries, and chargers.

  • Very nice! This rack takes up relatively little space, but it sure does have a lot of storage! Great work.

    • Thank you! It does have plenty of storage for its size. I am definitely happy with how it turned out!

  • How big is your opening. What plans did you use?
    By JeremyW, on March 16, 2017
    • Jeremy, The full dimensions are 21" wide x 17" tall x 11" deep. The opening is 19.5" wide x 8.5" tall. I didn't use any specific plans. I couldn't find anything that fit my particular needs/wants. I drew this one up based on others that I found on google images. I used 3/4" ply for everything and either 1 1/4 or 2" screws. Let me know if you have any other questions and hopefully I can help you out with it if you plan to make one! - Don

  • Don---REALLY awesome storage unit. Sure would be great if you could post your sketch/design. I've been collecting Ryobi cordless/corded since 1999 & would love to build a couple of these for my menagerie!

    • Thanks! I do have a sketch that I drew up. Once I find it, I'll edit the post and add the picture to it.
