Building a mitered box to hold my feeler gauges

I like to keep my feeler gauges loose (not attached to a ring, etc) but then they spread about in my tool drawer. So I made this small box from 1/8” Baltic Birch plywood.

Here’s the build video. Of particular interest will be the small parts miter table saw crosscut sled that I use with a special attachment that allows me to accurately and safely cut the small pieces of wood.

Another very good video and explanation of the process.

I really like the small table saw miter sled and will be building one soon. Most table saw sled are big but the small ones are very useful.

Nice little box! You can never have too many of those for odds and ends storage.

One thought though, would it not be easier and safer to use the method described by Martyn, the BritBoxmaker as it uses a router.

Seems like a lot more work to me, and certainly not safer, IMHO. But thanks for the suggestion – always interesting to see how others do things.
