I bought a router bushing kit and an inlay kit at HF, they just came blister packed so I needed a way to store them.
Made from alder? scraps I had laying around. I used a couple of magnets for a catch.
Stained with Minwax, I don’t remember the color. Finished with Deft spray lacquer buffed out with oooo steel wool and waxed. It was too cold in the shop to spray the lacquer (50 deg.) and so it didn’t level up like it should have so the finish is a little textured.

Great custom box. Nice to make your own tools/storage.

Keep it up.

PS: Stain looks like “Minwax American Pie”. Could be wrong though.

Great idea and useful at the same time. Looks way better than a plastic box or tray. Well done.

Great idea. I really must get this organised, lost and duplicated too many bits to count. Lovely work.
