I made a jig for my dremel which Double DD helped me with and then he posted a nice Cherry box that he made to keep everything organized. Well after seeing what he made I couldn’t resist and made one for my dremel jig.
I had a 1”x 12” pine stair tread that I bought for something (can’t remember old age I guess) and resewed to 1/4” thickness to make this box. This wood has a supper thin veneer on it and junk pine wood in the middle. But for this box I guess it will have to do. The sticker said Made in China… I had a little cherry so I added a strip on the edge and made some wide splines with it to give it a little contrast.

My thanks to Double DD for the inspiration!

Box measurement are 12” X 7” X 5 1/2” and Danish Oil finish

Thanks for looking!
All comment excepted good or bad!

The box looks great Tony and the cherry strips make it better. I see how you stored the wrench, I think I’ll copy that. Mine is tucked between the back wall and the kaizen foam. Looks to be a nice piece of clear pine to me.
I got to use the dremel again today. I found out it is only .8 amps. A lot less than the new models.

Geez Tony, that is toooooo flash.
Great job Buddy, and I love the wood contrasts.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice. I need to make one of the dremel jigs. Nice storage box which should hold everything for years.

Thanks, Joe, Jim, and tyvekboy,
I think it’s happy in it’s new home! :)

Thanks Dave,
I just stuck that magnet there with some CA glue for quick access. If you look in the box you can see the butt joints of the pine and there are some large knots also. I put the thin veneer side out. Maybe you should look into updating to a more powerful dremel.

Thanks, Lee, Bob, Stelios and Doug.
Dave and Klause are keeping me so busy. Still trying to get my to do list completed! Guess there is no chance of that happening LOL!

Thanks Jeff,
It’s nice when everything is in one place!

Nice of you to take the time and care of that Dremel tool and jig and make a fine looking storage box with nice hardware and some nice cherry accents for it .
Now taking a good look at the pictures it look more like 7/16” material to me which is about right for a box this size .

This is a fine tool box. It will be a safe place to put this dremel jig and a great addition to your shop.
