Made this out of std plywood from lowes…I got tired of having all these plastic cases stack up on shelves so I threw them away and put this case together to store my bits and accessories…. The layout wasn’t planned I just started putting in the bits and shelfs as out was bring built

Now that is a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

Is that a miniature hand saw decoration?

Very nice. Looks like you figured out how to put 10 pounds in a 5 pound box. Nicely packaged and well organized.

organize organize organize!!!!!

it’s stuff like that that makes life easier. and that door keeps em clean (relatively eh?)

For myself, I just aint figured out such an easy solution. I wish I could and I really have been lookin gbut to no avail. Your post prompts me to revisit the solution and start a “build”, and if it don’t work out at best first off, just modify and build again.

I’ve got number drills, letter drills imperial and metric regular twist drill bits that extend up above 64/64ths, , brad point too! Fprstners up to 3” Then there is the bitstock tools, Irwin, RJ’s (coarse and fine) left hand drill bits, Arrrrrgh!

Thanks for the inspiration.


I just keep hoping that some divine inspiration will jump into my brain, but so far no luck.

Great idea—something I’ve been thinking about for years but you have actually accomplished. Thanks for posting.

That takes all the fun out of rummaging around it my drill bit drawer looking for the right one. I rely on a kitchen table ware tray.
