Ryobi Tower of Power

My wife had me make a plant stand that she could hang potted plants on. Well, that lasted about half a season then I was stuck with this rolling obstacle around the shop that was forever in the way. I had seen numerous posts of the charging and storage stations that you can hang your cordless drills and drivers from and my gears began to churn. I simply made slots on the individual level for the tools I have and played around with some placement. The charger helps me remember to pull the batteries and put them back after use. No more waking up to a new day only to find most of my tools still sitting out with low charges. The fan on top swivels 360’ and the power strip provides a close plug in power point anywhere in the shop since the whole assembly rolls. The legs are 2x6 and the post is 4x4. The great news is that I made 2 of these for the wife! I have plans for the other one to hold paper towels, dispenser for latex gloves, all my paint guns and air tools as well as a small shelf for the stand that holds my HVLP gravity feed guns while I’m filling them or in between spraying. I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime I’m keeping my eyes out for some cool Ryobi decals that I can put on the “Tower of Power!”

  • And just like that, our minds are blown! That's a very clever tower, @Doc2nd2. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Just want to give a big THANKS! to the awesome people at Ryobi Nation for the great swag you sent! Being a small business owner I understand and appreciate the small things that you do for your customers. Those are the things that make your business ethics stand out and shows that each customer is special and not just another entry in a ledger. You already had a loyal customer, now you have the respect of a loyal customer and I am proud to display your name in my shop and on the job sites. 
         When I first decided to go into business for myself and open my shop I had only a few tools. I was at a construction site meeting with the head contractor in charge of building a major retail store walking through the structure. He had hired me to build some cabinet enclosures for some electronics. As I walked past numerous carpenters, electricians and such I noticed a lot of Ryobi tools being used. Later I spoke with one of the workers and he extolled the virtues of the Ryobi tools used on the job. Basically, they are hard working professional grade affordable tools for those that don't feel they have to be seen with the big name tools at often 3 times the price. I've been sold on Ryobi since and each tool I buy simply confirms my faith in  your products. Thanks again for providing us with a quality line of tools at an affordable price backed by great customer service.
