Compact drill dock
We love this DIY drill station because it organises your chargers as well as your tools.
Drill-drivers are one of the most useful tools in a DIYer’s collection, so much so that many own more than one. That often results in a bewildering array of batteries and chargers that end up cluttered and tangled.
This simple storage solution organises your drill-drivers and chargers for an affordable price. It requires only a single sheet of plywood.
This ingenious workbench showcases a nearly magical way to double your power tool storage: a bench top that flips upside down! Bolt your bench-top power tools to each side of the work surface. That way your tools not in use are automatically stored, safe and sound.
We love the high quality of this build, and it’s peppered with clever small details. Casters make it mobile, while the pegboard cabinet backs provide easy customisation. The side cabinet offers storage for a narrow-base bench-top power tool, like a drill press. The outfeed roller safely supports longer materials.
Most intermediate DIYers can tackle this project over a weekend.
Workbench with built-in timber and power tool storage
Here’s another workbench with built-in power tool storage. Its L-shaped design provides space to store all kinds of power tools, and the open-faced sides are good for timber and sheet goods. It’s a great solution as shown. If you have more power tools to store than timber, consider converting the front to cabinet doors.
The straightforward design makes this project beginner-friendly.
