Tell us about yourself!
Hi, I added a couple of more pictures so you can see how I set it up. There is a charger below the helf. The charging wire goes up through a hole in the shelf, so I can charge one drill while stored. Two of my drills use the same charger, so that's why I only added one charger. I have another charger for my AEG drill on the right side og the cabinet, as can be seen in the new pictures. Thanks for your question.
Great idea. Easy to rearrange.
Nice, I like the aluminum hangers, although they are a little expensive. Definitely minimizes the spacing of your boxes. We'll done, and nice finish! Having used my own cabinet for a while, I still like it. But I find myself pulling half of them out until I find the one I need. I'm thinking of labeling them maybe just with a color, so it is easier to get to the right one. I don't store electronics, but all kinds of small stuff. Congrats and good luck with it.
I made something similar. I hang my cord organizer right inside the door of my shop, so I can unroll to bring power outside.

Nice! Seeing this motivates me to make one. Covering the clips with thin strips of wood is really nice finish. I think even my wife might accept this! One tip: hinges can often be attached on the sides between wall and door. This way the hinge itself is hidden when the door is closed.
Great idea with vacuum from below!
Hi Alex. You are right, my boxes can't hang, so I put small shelves on each side of the cabinet to have the them in the rack. I might have been able to squeeze an extra box in if they could hang, but those boxes was what I had at hand. I just screwed the side shelves in from the outside of the cabinet. Painted the whole thing with a shining paint. It covers the screws a little bit, but after all it's just a cabinet for my show. I've made a small drawing that shows you how to make this out of one long panel. I haven't put measures on it, as that depends on your cases of course. I'll recomment 5 mm from top of one box to the shelves above. There is also another picture in a higher resolution, maybe you can see some detail you are looking for.

Nice, what paint are you using?
Made a similar rack of small parts boxes last year, inspired by various youtubers. Mine was built from old Ikea melamine clothing cabinets. It's a great storage solution, and I'm sure you'll like it. My boxes have customizable dividers, but having used them for a while now I know that next time I'll prefer something with small boxes inside. Also since I'm not super organized, I can never remember which one of the boxes contain want I need, so I often find myself pulling half of them out before getting to what I need. So maybe some kind of labeling would be great.
Mouse pad as grip, great idea!
Interesting ideas. Vertical tool doors or vertical pull out walls. Storage surface area increases dramatically, but I'm curious to know after a while if the tools tend to fall off accidently as you suggest. Shallow drawers is another option. That too increases the tool storage surface area. Many tools are no more than maybe an inch high, when laying in a drawer.
Nice, I should have known this when my car broke its engine last year.
You are right. I made this rack of "small parts boxes", that is seen in many places on youtube. At first I was really happy about it, but I have come to realise that I'm always pulling alot of boxes out of the rack, before I get to the right one. So yes, a wide drawer and with full extension slides would be much better. I do think I will have a go with the dividers, as I have an idea that they might actually be better if the stored parts are a little bigger, or come in fewer numbers.
Hi Abizar. Wonderful chest, and beautifully built. I'm a big fan of shallow drawers too. Making dividers like yours is tempting, but for my drawers I started to make small boxes like Marius Hornbergers does in his video. I think I will recommend this for your next drawers, even though it is a bit more work.I like the boxes, because you can take them out and put them more conveniently where you work. But the best part is, that is is easier to re-organize things. For example if you find that the cell you are using for something is getting too small, it is easy to take the box out and pour the stuff into a larger box. I made boxes of 5x5 cm and 10x5 cm. Plan is to always keep side lengths multiple of 5 cm, so new boxes always fit in with the other boxes.
Nice. I would like to make one, and then one mirrored too. Placing a box between such two on a table saw sled, could work for making splines in boxes.
