I don’t use my router too much, so I want to keep it and my router bits organized and protected. I made this tool box a little different, so it wouldn’t be too big. The small drawers (for bit storage) were arranged vertically, so the remaining space would be big enough for the router and still keep it 18×13 x 10 deep. The case is made from 3/4 pine and the frame for the back is 5/4 stock. A rabbet was cut all around the frame so it would fit inside the case with just a 5/16 reveal. It was held in place with wood screws that were counterbored and filled with wooden plugs. The front rails and stiles are pine with a raised, poplar panel. I used a simple cupboard lock in the top rail, and a piano hinge on the bottom.
Nothing fancy about the drawers: fronts are made from walnut scraps with poplar sides and backs. They do keep the few router bits that I have in order.
I have been wanting to make this storage box for 7 years, and never got around to it. Now that it’s done I can get back to my regular projects, knowing exactly where my router and its related parts are safely stored.
