Bigger Dremel Tool Storage

My Dremel tool and accessories grew kind of quickly so I built a larger storage box. The suitcase style shape will fit better on the shelf also with my router bit case. I used walnut and sycamore in the making. The handle is also walnut. Finished with Danish oil and satin lacquer. Some of the sycamore blended in with the sapwood of the walnut and made it look like one piece. I was very satisfied with that.
15’’ wide x 10’’ deep x 5’’ high.
Thanks for looking.

That’s almost too pretty to bang up by putting tools in it, Dave!

Wow! And it’s for tools???? I’m thinking the same as what Dave from Minneapolis said. This is so nice and I would hate to see it get dinged up in the shop. Dave don’t you make any that aint pretty? Great job!

That case is worth more than the tool in it. Really nice. Makes me ashamed of the plastic case I use.

I have to admit; That pretty is way too nice for in the shop! That will make a very impressive executive brief case!

“a very impressive executive brief case!”

100% agree with this!

Router base inside the case looks great too!

Thanks Dave. It wasn’t suppose to turn out looking this good. I wanted to use the spotted walnut up I had and some small strips of the sycamore. Turned out decent.

Hoss, these briefcase designs look cool and I feel they will store better on the shelf.

Thanks Tony, I promise to keep it looking good. Like I said above, it wasn’t to turn out like this. Usually I try to use lumber I don’t think I’ll use on a project. And the ones that do look bad, I don’t post. LOL.

Thanks Rick. I like a lot of the plastic cases that come with tools. The problem is they never leave room for adding on or accessories.

Thanks ralbuck. I have a idea of making a small piece of luggage like a carry onbag to use for my 3 day getaways. I might be on this in a few months.

Pottz, I agree. Children should be treated with love and care. In this case they got candy and ice cream.

Thanks Torus. I wanted the case size to fit the dremel with stand assembled. I was getting lazy fro having to put it together every time I used it.

Dave …...That is a Master Piece….If you went through the international airport with that the authorities would think you were the High Commissioner.

Quite seriously, that is a beautiful briefcase. I like the way it is all constructed with wood. Even the Handle.
The Clasps look great too.

You have really excelled with this one Dave. I love the colour and how they have blended.
Excellent job mate.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice Dave! I also agree it’s too nice for the shop. I paid close attention to the handle pics. Something I need to try!

Nicely done Dave! From the handle to the flowing wood pattern. Looks like you could even tap out a tune on it. (cajon style)
