I made a quick drill charging station out of 3/4 inch plywood. I houses my drill, impact, and brad nailer. I mounted the charger on the side as well so everything is in one spot. I added a drawer to keep my Kreg jig, a few bits, and nails in. It is mounted on the wall with a french cleat.

Impressive and well organized. Get a timer for your charger. Batteries are on average good for 1000 cycles. A cycle is everytime the charger detects a low battery and it is plugged in. With a timer you control how often it charges up rather than doing it on it’s own.

Look at this project to see how they can be used. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/261514

That is a fantastic idea I have never even thought of that! Great project.

Thanks. Not hard to make, basic electricity 101 and some time. Well worth the investment as this turns off the charger so no overheated batteries or chargers.
