The batteries in the TV remote went out and I had to find two AA’s to get back online. So, I went to junk drawer. Ya, I store my batteries in the same place you do. It took about 5 minutes to find two batteries that always seems to on the bottom and way in the back. The combination of watching a few news reports on how unsafe it is to store batteries in a drawer and the frustration in finding them when you need them drove me to find a better solution.
I surfed the web and found a few plans that I liked and combined a few attributes from each to create a storage solution that fits my needs. The finalized design can store 9 volts, D’s, AA’s, AAA’s, and has 3 shelves to storage rechargeable wall wart, and other batteries that are an odd sized but are needed from time to time.
I wanted this project to be classy and made from solid wood. It is made from red oak that is planed to 1/2″. The plexi-glass is 1/8″ to provide a clear view of the batteries to take quick inventory. The design of the unit presented a quite a few cross grain gluing situations. These are always frightening! I used strategic gluing and a few black screws to provide the construction to last for many generations… unless they change the size of batteries
