Power tools are often greater in size than manual tools. However, much as with hand tools, how you arrange your power tools will be heavily influenced by how many you have, how much storage space you have, and how frequently you want to use them. If you just have a few power tools, such as a circular saw, a drill, and a belt sander, you might be able to get away with buying a large tool box with a drawer large enough to house all three of these things. Someone with a larger collection, on the other hand, will have to come up with a different approach.

If you have a lot of power tools, you probably have a place to utilize them, whether it's your garage or a workshop. One of the most frequent methods of storing power tools is in bins or containers beneath a workstation or tabletop. Purchasing sealable containers may be a smart option because they will protect your power tools from water and other hazards that might potentially damage them. It's also a good idea to keep them off the ground for the same reason. Keep in mind that keeping your power tools too low may put a strain on your spine. If you do decide to keep your power tools in containers, you may arrange them by putting comparable things in the same container. A circular saw, a jig saw, and a reciprocating saw, for example, can all be placed in the same bin. You would need a separate space for table saws.

If you want to make your power tools even more accessible, you might create a storage cabinet or even a shelf for them to sit on. This is a reasonably affordable choice, and if you use the tools frequently, it may be a better option. Waferboard is inexpensive and ideal for this sort of project [source: Brown]. Depending on the height of your workspace's ceiling, you may want to consider putting hooks to hang your power tools from. Simply ensure that the hooks are robust enough to sustain the weight of anything you're hanging from them.

Of course, if you have a lot of power tools, you presumably also have some seasonal tools. Continue reading to learn how to organize them.
