nothing to special here just a quick pine box … reason because tired of digging thru tool box for 1 hour to find all parts ... now they will be handy to take along or not :<))

Nicely Done! Labeling is a must for me. 2 days later I’ll forget what’s in the box. A month later I’ll forget where the box is located!

Gr8 job, Tony! Now you just need to make sure you don’t bury your kit under a bunch of other boxes. ;-)

Top marks Tony on an appropriate solution to a common problem across many workshops.
Just last month I purchased some plastic organizer boxes to sort hardware.

Great job, now one just needs to remember where the box is.

At the moment most of my tools are in boxes and it has gotten old digging through boxes to find an item. Occasionally I get lucky and find what I am looking for in the first box. (Peter, I use the large peanut butter jars for hardware, works great.)

That’s a good idea Tony. My stepdad gave me a kit like this 40 years ago. It was fun to use.

Totally inspired Tony! I just found 2 pieces of mine laying in my shirt dryer this afternoon and wondered how they ended up there!

I buy a lot of mixed nuts from Costco. The container holds 2.5 #, have a large lid(about 4”) and are square for easy stacking. They are ideal for storing all kinds of stuff. They are a clear hard plastic, so it’s easy to identify the contents. If you have a lot of small parts, organization is important. I hate spending time looking for one of those items I just know I saved several months ago. Besides the nuts are good.
