How do you store your power tools?


Besides under workbench in basement, I build a vertical rolling platform in my garage. It's a modified version of this:

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31964

Mine just uses pegboard on the outside rather than full plywood sides. (I didn't see the point of the extra weight.) The dolly I used as a base was maybe $14 and the wood maybe $100 all in, with the pegboard being the most expensive component and still leaving a bunch left over for other stuff. Oh, and the draw slides alone were $20 as well. (Because I just had to have the good ones for some stupid reason.)

It took one day to build with pocket hole joinery and a brad nailer to attach the pegboard.

The shelf heights are sized for the power tool boxes I have. In the couple of cases where I don't have cases for the tools, they just sit on a top shelf.

You can buy a big storage box or a cabinet to store your power tools.

I keep mine in the hard cases they come in that way all the parts and acces. for them are in one place. The ones I use a lot are on shelves in the truck the rest are on shelves either in shop or garage.

I hate to buy tools that come in the bags, can't stack and take a lot of room side by side.

I keep mine in the hard cases they come in as well. As for the ones that come in bags, well.... those bags end up in my girlfriends possession fairly quick. She was using my yellow Dewalt bag as a gym bag, lol.

I've decided that I am going to either build some cabinets, or find some cheap that'll clean up easily and hang those in the garage.
