This is a simple little bit holder I made to mount on my pegboard and keep everything in easy reach. I drilled out 1/4” holes in some MDF scrap, glued it to a piece of hardboard, and then prettied it up with some leftover scraps of corner molding, then mounted it on some pegboard brackets. I used some leftover chain from another project suspended underneath to hold a papertowel roll. The whole thing is about 5” deep and almost 3’ long.

Thanks for the idea. I need to make something like this as my bits are in various storage boxes they came in and spread around. Looking forward to shop reorg over this winter so this is added to my favorites.

I don’t have a drill press (would have made things go faster) so I made a simple spacer template out of a scrap of hardboard and just repeated the drilling pattern with a power drill, only took about an hour or so to make once I decided on the size.

I’ve since gotten about a dozen router bits, a new set of countersink bits, and a handful of misc other pieces, so its looking like time to expand heh! I’m debating making one giant tray that runs the length of the bottom of the pegboard (8 feet long – I figure that’d be a while before I manage to fill it up again lol!)
