Since the usage of this tool is not so high, I always spend significant time to find out the adequate attachment, even I purchase the item I already have. Eventually it is meaningful to make the organizing box to reduce the wasting time and money. The biggest issue of this box is the weight. The lumber used is walnut an maple for the carcass, horse chestnut for the front panel. The retractable handle is my minor twig.

Your organization box is both unique and gorgeous. Nicely done! I’ve the same issues with my Dremel…rarely use it, but when I do it’s the only tool that fits the bill…if I can keep up with all the adaptors, blades and bits. Nicely done!

I agree with the guys above. An elegant execution to a great solution to a common problem. It looks amazing.

I am very interested in your use of horse chestnut. Is that a wood that is commonly available in Japan? It looks amazing. Also, is that form of “curly” chestnut, or does all horse chestnut have that “banding” to it?

Nice work!
