Steve Makes: Cordless Tool Dock | Tool Storage (Polyurethane Resin)

Hey guys.. I decided to make some storage for my cordless power tools, for when I'm not using them, and to try and keep the bench tidy.. I made a pattern out of mdf and used chavant clay to make some of the details.. I made a silicone mould so that I could cast out multiple parts.. If I get any more cordless tools I can cast out more 'docks'.. Because these are for holding my tools I wasn't worried about the finish.. You can see the texture of the mdf on the cast parts..

Materials:
MDF
Chavant Clay
Silicone
Gun Foam
SG2000
Pigment
spray wax (release agent)

  1. Looks really nice, good idea. But looks time consuming … How long did it take to get to this point?

  2. Nice idea Steve!! I love it

  3. Love it! Sweet idea, and great execution.

  4. Hi Rudi.. thanks :).. If I wasn’t videoing, it would take me about 2-3 hours to get to the stage that I was pouring the silicone.. I then let it cure overnight.. I was able to de-mould the cast parts about 15 mins after they were poured.. so I was able to make the little shelf in the time i was waiting for the resin to set.. It’s probably a bit eccentric for what it is, but it let me introduce some new materials to my channel 🙂
