    Battery Organizer



    Here is a battery organizer that I made recently. I found the plan on the wood magazine site. I have a list of free project plans over at my blog. It was a free plan and pretty fun to make. The whole project only took a few hours, and can be made mostly with just scraps.

    You can check out my full entry on how I made this over at: www.woodlogger.com


    I also attempted to make a video of how I made this:

    Daris,

    First off, welcome! Good to have you here and thanks for posting this. I remember seeing this plan in WOOD and thinking it would be useful in my home. You've served to rekindle that idea. Thanks!

    I have got to make me one of those! I've got a couple of boxes storing batteries, and it's just darn unorganized and annoying...

    Look good from another Hoosier.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    I liked it so much I had to make one. Mines pretty crudely made from some scraps freom my last project.

    I took the liberty of expanding the capacity a bit and I added a drawer to hold smaller button and coin batteries as well.
