I have a bunch of (mostly power tool) chargers in five different brands.  All up about 8 chargers I like to have access to at any give time: -


- 3 or 4 x B&D 18v chargers 


- A Dremel charger


- A coupe of wall-worts with leads,


- A handheld VHF charging cradle




Would also be nice to find storage room for: -


- Auto battery charger


- 12v DC desktop power supply (both about 200 x 150 x 80)




I'm limited to a foot print of 600 x 600.  The available space runs from work bench height to ceiling.  I would appreciate ideas for storage to build/buy.


Needs to be tidy, secure, easy to access all chargers, separation between chargers, room to run cords.

Perhaps build (or buy) something like one of these, perhaps with a door on the front as cables are hard to tidy sufficiently for being on display?


Hole saw through the shelves in one corner...  perhaps paint it a dark colour to hide grubby finger marks from changing batteries mid-project... if buying one of these perhaps screw an 8mm-ish sheet of ply to the back to give the thing some rigidity.

Thanks. That's similar to where I had landed, which was a pigeon hole type cabinet. 


It's an organisation cabinet, rather than display cabinet. I don't mind finger prints, or visible cords as long as they are out of the way.
