Router Bit Storage

I built this 2 or 3 years ago and never thought it was that fantastic but several people have commented that they thought it was great.

Actually it is pretty handy and very simple to build. I mounted the shelves in slots so you could pull the shelves out to get a good look at the bit selection. It also allowed you to storage a large amount of bits in a really small place. If the shelves didn’t pull out I would have had to allow enough space above the bits to get to them.

The wood is Sassafras which I seldom use. It’s a light weight wood that looks like oak but has a slight green cast to it. I guess I don’t like the green color but it sure does smell good. The shop smells like a root beer factory when you work with this stuff.

Mork that is a really efficient and very attracting case/cabinet for those router bits. You’ve given me a few ideas to incorporate in the case I want to build . Thank you.

That are very well organized router bits and easy accessible. I keep my in original plastic boxes in a drawer – I like this version more.

Looks good. I like the root beer comment. Now I want to buy some Sassafras just to cut it up and see for myself…......or should I say, “smell for myself”

This is a great idea!!! I love that you can take the shelves out and bring them to your table for quick bit swap outs. i may incorporate a similar concept to this for my router bits. Great work! Thanks for sharing!

Did you drill the holes an exact 1/4” or 1/2” size—or something larger? I always have a pickle of a time pulling the bits out, when I drill them exactly the size of the shaft….. Just curious.

I drilled them slightly over but I learned from past experience. They will definitely get stubborn about coming out if you don’t!

Have your say...
