This is my Every Day Cary orginizer!

I carry the following everyday:


kinetic watch

Swiss Army Tinker

Streamlight Tactical 1AAA

Fisher Space Pen

I needed a way to organize and store the items that I use the most and this is what I came up with. I made it with scraps of Walnut as it is very abundant in Indiana. The only thing I would change is possibly add a lid to the box.

I am very excited to keep my valuables organized!! I also have a wireless charger that fits under the phone to always keep it charged and ready to go!

Indy, I like the design. It is practical and straightforward. Our local walnut is indeed a beautiful wood. I have something like this that sits by the door. I call it my “in and out box.”

With your obvious skills in furniture making and wood working in general, I am surprised you didn’t 45 the corners and perhaps add splines. A top would add to the decorative value, but it would also get in the way of its use. What are the dimensions of your organizer? Keep boxing and keep posting.
