    Nailer cubby

    I was a very good boy and got the set of air nailers I was asking for.

    Now, this is going to be extremely vague but I need help finding something I've seen for storing them. I think it was a drawer, and the nailers sat upright in slots waiting to be used. Don't know where I saw it, but I know I've seen it. Google hasn't served me well tonight.

    If you know what I'm talking about, please throw me a line.

    Min are stored like that. I have them in the bottom drawr of my assembly table. I just used peices of 3/4 ply between the guns nailed thru the bottom of the drawer. Most of my tools are in drawers.

    If you would be so kind as to take a pic of that at some point, I'd be much obliged. It's not any kind of hurry, it'll be a good month at least before I get started on making my cabs.

    I can't believe I haven't found where I've seen it yet.

    How about just making a 1/4" dado or groove inside the front & back of the drawer for a 1/4" divider & make cut outs in the divider to leave room to reach in to pick the nailer out of the drawer. Keep it simple.

    I can see that a couple of different ways.

    Well I hope you saw it in a good way because that's the way it was meant.

    No, I meant I pictured the layout a couple of different ways. Gives me options.

    I've been looking too. One idea I'm thinking about is to make a rolling cart for my pancake compressor with storage cubbies for the tools and a drawer for the misc. items. Looking forward to see what you come up with for your needs.

    Here are a few adaptable ideas.

    Excellent Links Leonard! And welcome aboard!!!

    I like the way they stored the air tools using the connectors. Those connectors are cheap enough at Harbor Freight. I might just use that idea...
