My router bit collection was growing; needed a place to keep them all. This case has a bottom out of padauk; the sides are bubinga and were coved on a table saw; the top is bookmatched narra wood in a “floating panel” design. The splines are purpleheart. I have since put a handle on it out of bubinga as well. The inner foam padding was a DeWalt tool case insert, which is still sold at big box home improvement stores. Right after I made the box, I bought a set of ten large architectural millwork bits, and still, the case fit them all. It’s beautiful wood, and alllows me to make my bits and router junk portable. Works for me.

Sorry that a couple pictures are upside-down. Lumberjocks’ site always does that to half of my pictures.

Here’s one from Flickr instead:

Thanks,

I’d never done a table saw cove or a floating panel. Good opportunity for me to see if it was as easy as it seemed.
