How to build a PVC drill storage unit

PVC Drill Storage

Here’s another quick project to help organize your workshop! This time we’re talking about storage for drills.

PVC Drill Storage

PVC pipes make good, easy-access holsters for all your cordless drills, impact drivers and other tools.

It’s a great project if you already have some excess PVC pipe, but it’s still an inexpensive project even if you need to buy pipe.

You can mount these PVC units under a shelf, under your battery charging station or even at the sides of your work table.

With the right tools, making a drill holder with PVC pipe is fast and easy especially. You’ll be an expert after you’ve finished the first one! So while you’re making some PVC drill storage holsters for yourself, why not make another set or two for friends or family?

Do you know anyone who needs this drill storage solution?
