I use the PVC pipe method for my 2 DEWALT drills.

Mine go back in the case they came with.  The two impact drivers go in the larger storage cabinet.

Some neat idea's.  Most of mine I have picked up at yard sales or the trader paper (local weekly shopping guide) so I don't have cases for most of mine.  These would work out nicely in the shop.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm just not a fan of PVC and cases take up too much space. I like the box in the middle best but I would put doors on it. My cases go on a shelf in my crawl space. I can walk upright under almost all of my crawl space so it makes great storage. I built cabinets on the back wall of my garage and I stand my drills and impacts on the first shelf. I like cabinets because they keep things dust free and it shields my stuff from prying eyes in my front facing garage. The chargers are underneath on an open shelf. I keep my sawzall and one of my routers in its case but that's it.

You can't tell by my garage now, but I like having a home for every tool and ensuring they make it back to their home each evening. Makes life much easier.

If I ever get to build a garage, I know exactly how I will spec it. First will be 3/4" plywood under the drywall so I can put a screw anywhere I want. Next will be quad 20A outlets on every other stud with 220 on opposing walls.
