Power Tool Shelf

Power tool shelf Besides providing storage for my portable power tools, this simple shelf solves another nagging problems as well — keeping the power cords from getting tangled up.

Each power cord fits in a separate compartment below the tool, see photo. These compartments are formed by a number of dividers that are sandwiched between a top and bottom.

The location of the dividers is determined by the amount of space each tool requires. Note: To allow the base of the tool to sit flat on the shelf, you may need to modify the top by cutting slots or drilling holes to acommodate blades or bits.
