Bag fetishism is not exclusive to the females. At least not when toolbag are considered. Gifted with a demanding day job, a toddler and a family, most of the time I only can dream or think about woodworking, rather than being in the shop. And toolboxes/toolbags are the essence of the dream of what might be done.
So, below the synthetic leather in the first picture there is a wooden frame (with hand-cut dovetails!) lined with the polyethylene foam I already used with #2.
The whole set-up can either be used alone – it would make a nice and handy display on a desk or workbench – or dropped into a comercial bag (here a lighting fixture bag). The bits now find their place on a piece of foam in the box shown perking out of the front pocket.
The reminder of the space in the bag can be filled with additional tools like a level, the folding kataba and the cordless already shown in #2.
The crucial advantage of this set-up is the lightning access to single tools. The bag resides on the shelf (out of my toddler’s reach) and I just grab a screw driver and can put it back without hazzling with closures or anything.
