  • Everything fits so nicely! Looks like you thought of everything!
    By RYOBI NATION, on May 15, 2018
    • I gave the design, location and mounting method quite a bit of thought. It has paid off and I learned a lot making changes as the project progressed. The pencil holder is my favorite!
      By Dnasty, on June 6, 2018

  • Nicely done, looks great.  I've been exploring options for hanging my One+ Circular saw and really like this design.  The pencil box and sharpener is a fantastic idea, it seems like I spend half of my time in the shop looking for a pencil.

    • Thanks for the kind comments. I made a removable lift out  insert for the pencils. Seems they always get small and hard to reach.

  • Great looking unit. You should sell these

    • You are too kind. Thanks for the compliment.

  • Very nice, I am working on a rolling cabinet to house my Ryobi collection and might incorporate some of your ideas, I really like the circular saw holder design.  What specifically did you do for the sawzall holder?  It looks like it slides out but can't see how the sawzall is mounted in it. 
    By loneagle2001, on June 6, 2018
    • I did create a slide in for the Sawzall.  Once slid out, the Sawzall itself slides in from the side of the slide making it impossible for it to be bumped and come out while in the slide and in the storage unit. It took a bit of profile crafting to make the Sawzall foot slide in but in the end was worth it.  Pics available if you like just shoot me a message.

    • sounds simple enough, but would love to see pics if you have them.

  • I am not a carpenter and am not familiar with the project language;however I just bought the 6 piece Ryobi combine and the skill saw.  I would like to build this tool storage.   Do you have a set of plans I can use.  Please respond to Thanks

  • THAT is nice!  Well done and awesome idea!
    By randall.lynn, on June 6, 2018
    • Thank you. 
      By Dnasty, on June 6, 2018

  • This is fantastic! I have my Ryobi tools stashed in several different areas because there is no area that can hold them all.  Maybe one day I will make something similar to hold them.  You may need another one of these, because you will probably get more Ryobi power tools.  It's hard to stop buying them!
    By TPopArt, on June 6, 2018
    • Thanks for the compliment. I absolutely love it and has all my tools up where they are convenient to get to as opposed to everything on the floor in the green work tote. I may very well expand on it and with the french cleat hanging system that will be a breeze. But for now it is working just how it should. .

    • And it appears that you can plug in the charger and charge your batteries there, which is great.  It's certainly better than keeping the charger in the living room like we do.  LOL
      By TPopArt, on June 6, 2018
    • Yes, that was part of the plan to keep everything centrally located including the charger and spare batteries. Charging outside the interior of the home is a much better choice. For safety and other reasons. Good luck in your endeavors.

  • It is crazy, when you think about it, "Ryobi Nation". You have to be one to understand. I loved the tool organizer. I will work on this as I too have tools stored all over the garage. Compact easy to retrieve, thanks for the idea.

  • Nice job. I am working on a similar unit and would love to see pics of the Sawzall holder. Please email to Thanks and great job.

  • What a great idea! That holds a ton of spices! Did you run into any difficult spots when creating this?
    By RYOBI NATION, on May 15, 2018
    • Thanks.  It was a fun project and the build was very straightforward.  The thing I struggled with the most was getting the stain to match the existing cabinets as close as possible.  I used a Minwax Cherrywood Gel Stain and blended in some dark walnut before applying the polyurethane top coat. 
      By grover959, on May 15, 2018
    • We think you did really well getting them to match!!
      By RYOBI NATION, on May 22, 2018

  • This really turned out well and is a great use of space!

    By katmcl, on May 16, 2018
    • Thank you.  I'm planning on doing a few more projects to complement it and provide more storage in their small kitchen
      By grover959, on May 16, 2018

  • My wife has been asking for something like this. I may steal your idea and do this later this summer. 
    By kenboyer, on May 17, 2018
    • The fun thing with this project was being able to create something tailored to the available space. It looks like it's always been there. I have some other space saving kitchen projects in mind that I hope to do soon.
      By grover959, on May 18, 2018

  • Hi! I love what you  have down with that sliding cabinet. I was wondering though how you mounted it to the wall and have it be strong enough to hold all those spices. Would you be able to give me links to the hardware you used to mount it to the wall and have it slide?

    I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time and your implementation has been the best I have seen by far!

    • Thanks.  I used 28" ball bearing drawer slides that I found on Amazon.
      They are full extension slides with 1" over travel that help provide additional extended length.  The drawer slides are rated for 100+ lbs and the rack fully loaded is about half that weight.  I originally thought I might have to use additional slides but started with two of them and found that it moves in and out really easy, even when loaded up.  

      Building a frame mock-up helped to optimize size and placement.  The width of the unit is 5.5" and still allows the refrigerator door to swing fully open without interference.

      I wish you the best on your project.
