I designed and made an adjustable router bit storage system. The adjustable holders (carriages) allow for a wide variety of router bit diameters. A key slides into a groove in the back rail which prevents tipping.

I posted the video here already, but if you missed it, you can see it here. (Part 1 and Part 2)

It looks great. I think if I were to make something like this, I would make each bit holder be removable and able to sit flat and stable on a flat surface. I don’t have quite the discipline or attention span to remember to go put things back where they go if it means taking my eyes off the thing I’m working on. If the bit holders could be carried around, I would instinctively place a bit I just took out of the router back into the holder rather than leaving it lying somewhere.

Cool build. I may try something such as what you have. My 80-90 bits are in three locations.
