Hello Everyone. I’ve been really wanting to use up a last little piece of this birdseye maple I had but it was really small. I decided to make this small router but box that would hold the 11 bits I use most.
I posted this box after I stained it looking for advise/help and several people supplied great information. I was struggling with glue residue and stain blotches. Here is a link if you want to take a look. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/107279
This turned out to be 7×4 x 4 1/2. The scraps are walnut and birdseye maple. I raised the shelf so that I could store extra bearing’s, hex wrench and bit profile information (in case my mind goes blank). None of these would be used often so I thought this would help them from getting lost.
I just put the hinges on the outside and finished this with three coats of General Finished wipe on poly. I found the clasp at Hobby Lobby. I never realized these were so hard to find in a silver finish.
Thanks for looking.
