Introduction: DIY Power Tool Storage W/ Charging Station
Let's build this awesome power tool wall storage system. I had to organize my power tools in my shop, and decided to design and build this wall storage unit. This woodworking project is pretty simple to make, all made from plywood and 1 piece of pegboard. You can also add some stain and varnish for a final touch. I used imperial unit for this build but you can find all the metric dimensions below. Also, i added for FREE my SketchUp model, feel free to download it and modify it to yours needs. Happy Building ! :)
Step 1: MATERIAL NEEDED :
First, you will need to cut some plywood pieces. Here's a list of what you need. You can also download my SketchUp file for free here : . I made this project using imperial measurements but i converted everything to metric so use what's better for you! ;)
Plywood thickness is 5/8 (16mm)
[2X] 63"x15" (1600mm x 381mm)
[1x] 63"x7" (1600mm x 178mm)
[1x] 63"x1-½" (1600mm x 38mm)
[1x] 61-¾"x12" (1549mm x 305mm)
[1x] 61-¾"x6" (1549mm x 152mm)
[4x] 15"x12" (381mm x 305mm)
[2x] 38"x6" (965mm x 152mm)
[2x] 51-¼"x6" (1295mm x 152mm)
[2x] 18-9/16"x4" (472mm x 102mm)
[1x] 23-3/8"x4" (594mm x 102mm)
[1x] 36" or more x 6-¼" (914mm or more x159mm)
For the pegboard :
[2x] 48"x1-½" (1219mm x 38mm)
[5x] 36-¾"x1-½" ( 933mm x 38mm)
[1x] PEGBOARD (1219mm x 933mm)
[1x] Water-based Stain ( Black color )
[1x] Floor Varnish ( Semi-gloss )
[1x] Rust Oleum Spray Paint ( Color : Black Stainless steel ( it's just a darker stainless steel color) )
[1x] Kreg-Jig Mini for making pocket holes
Step 2: Making the Pegboard Frame
Now let's make the frame for the pegboard and glue the pegboard on it. Next, i will spray some black stainless steel paint and let it dry for at least 24 hours. During this time, i will make the bottom part of the wall storage unit.
Step 3: Making Some Pocket Holes for the Base
I want my base to be strong, so i'm making some pocket holes before the assembly. Then i add glue and screw everything in place.
Step 4: Making the Upper Part
I wanted to have adjustable shelves, so I use a template that I made for another construction to drill even-spaced holes. I will also put a fixed shelf in the center to prevent the vertical boards from moving apart.
Step 5: Sanding
This is the easy part .. Sanding . You could sand before assembling the pieces. At the moment of building this wall organizer, this Black & Decker sander was the only sander i had, so reaching all the corners was easy.
Step 6: Stain and Varnish
Im using some black water-based stain ( 2 coats ) and floor varnish ( 2 coats ) and 5 coats for the top of the bottom unit because it will also be used as a countertop.
Step 7: Assemble All the Pieces.
Screw the pegboard in place and screw the top part to the bottom using the pocket holes we made earlier.
Step 8: Installing to Wall
Now the last step, installing the power tool organizer unit to the wall. Make sure you screw it into wall studs.
Step 9: Charging Station
I also made a charging station with my 4 chargers. I hidden all the wires behind the board. Dimension may vary depending on the size of your chargers but my board is 24" wide by 12" high and 2" deep.
Step 10: Get Organized and Enjoy !!
