Simple solution for no-tip drill storage

Even cordless drills designed to stand upright on their battery packs will easily tip over. Make a quick shelf that holds them upright by cutting a battery-pack-shaped hole in a 2×4. Then, glue a piece of thin plywood or hardboard to the bottom of the 2×4. Set the shelf on your bench or mount it to the side of the bench or to a wall.
