This is a drawer that I made ( for the first aid supplies) to mount under the sandpaper organizer that was just finished a week earlier. It is a swing out drawer that pivots on a 1” diameter piece of steel tubing. it is a real tight fit in the opening in order to keep dust out of it. I did not want to make a rounded body for the drawer so I added a filler in the opening to fill the side gap. It is made from scraps found in the shop and the lettering is free handed with a v- groove router bit.
It is finished with white enamel.

cheers, Jim

You never know when you might need it, I hope never.

Hi Ivan. We had to use it today for a cut from the rough bark on some ironwood. The tweezers come in handy for slivers too! Now we have a central place for it all.
Cheers, Jim

It’s good practice to have one of those EASILY at hand.

Good idea!

I should do this too… except I have a bathroom very close by… Had to use once when I got cut with a router accident! Glad it was there.

You NEVER know when you’ll need it.

looks great Jim, nice idea with the swing out drawer pull. That’s something I haven’t really seen before and a cool way to do it

Cool kit. A good reminder that I need to get something in the shop for removing slivers. I have been getting too many lately and I don’t like them. Also good to have a pair of magnifying glasses in there to see them better.

Another great idea Jim, do you lay awake at night dreaming these things, it beats the h-ll out of my two band aids in a baggy in my junk drawer… Now I have to come up with something similar for my work space, Great Job!

Some would argue this is the most important gear in the shop Jim, (including me) when you need it, it has to be right there & right now, nice job :)
cheers Pete

Great addition and very handy.
You never know when the next “Scratch” comes along.
