I made this tool organiser to prevent my carving tools from rolling around my bench and getting damaged.I used scrap osb and pine that I had in my workshop.I used pipe as the holders for the individual items.
I dyed the box blue as I love the look of dyed osb I think it has a nice marble effect.I decided to try the wood dye on the piping so I sanded it rough and dyed it and it took to the plastic well and dried in.I used a clear coat to seal the organiser.Now i have a place to keep my carving knives and tools safe.
I made a Youtube video of the process,please thumbs up subscribe and share!

Ashe, nice idea and fun to build. The blue dye was a good touch. What kind of dye did you use?

The video was fun to watch as well. Organization is one of the things boxes do best. Thanks for sharing.

I gotta admit that when I saw your banner OSB Carving Tool Organiser I wondered, Now who carves OSB?
I gotta read this …

This is a good utility tool and it is indeed blue … I’ve always wondered if anything would color PVC pipe, and it looks like you have found the way. Good organizer.

That’s a very practical tool holder and a nice addition to your shop.
