Father’s Day is just around the corner, so it is time to start shopping for the special men in your life. Black+Decker has a great new drill out that would make a perfect gift and help get all those DIY projects completed around the house.
We used our Black+Decker 20V MAX Lithium drill to help us organize the garage with a DIY sports ball holder. We have had balls rolling all over our garage for years, so it was beyond time to corral them. My husband used some scrap lumber, some screws and 3 bungee cords to make our DIY sports ball holder.
We used the space between our two garage doors to make it easier to put together, plus it is a great way to use that space. For the top you will need 2 1×4 pieces of lumber cut to fit the space between your garage door. Then you will need to cut 2 right triangles for your supports. Screw these into on of the 1×4 pieces and screw into the wall. Drill 3 holes evenly spaced across this 1/4 that will fit your bungee cord hooks. You can choose the length of bungee cord that you would like to have. It will make the space longer or shorter depending on your needs.
The other 1×4 will be your base for the above platform. You will need a piece of plywood cut to fit your space between the doors and then cut into a similar shape like above. Screw this platform to the 1/4 and then screw it into the wall.
With your lightweight Black+Decker drill drill 3 holes like above for your bungee hooks. 1 right in the middle and then one in the middle of each angle.
Now hook on your bungee cords and add your sports balls and start organizing your garage. The new Black+Decker drill was so easy to use to help us with this project. It was lightweight, yet powerful. It also has a super handy place to hold the screw bit which was really handy.
