Last quick (workshop) project before one month (’’short’‘) summer brake. I had to organize my CMT routers which lay in drawer not accessible and clearly visible. 10mm playwood, staples gun, glue and specific colours and logo of CMT. I printed template on paper and sprayed it on black background. Maybe it’s little messy, but paper was thin and soft and didn’t hold background well. I hang them on nails and screws. At the back is a piano hinge.

That’s looking good. A lot of nice CMT router bits. Do they use a 8mm shank in Kroatie?

Do you like CMT bits a lot. It seems you do. I have a bunch of those same bits that I just bought in an auction. They seem to be good bits. That’s great cabinet you’ve built to keep them in Ivan.

Nice cabinet. Having organization is like having a big shop. Nice set of bits too.

Ivan it looks like you purchased almost all the bits CMT has and you should have gotten a free display cabinet .LOL
Just kidding .
That is one nice router bit storage with all the plastic boxes protecting the bits .
I like CMT products myself and have many bits and saw blades and used to sell them for years before I retired .

Great project, and man you got some $$$$$ in router bits but I’ll bet you just got one as needed and it adds up over time.
But hey we need what we need, and it doesn’t hurt if we show them a little love now and then. LOL

”Dobar izbor bitova!”
Google says it’s “Good choice of bits!”
I’ll go along with that.
