There’s nothing particularly fancy about this; it fills a need for router bit and accessory storage. If you happen to have a JessEm router stand then you know that there was a lot of wasted space mid-stand. I decided to make better use of it by building a set of drawers. The top 3 drawers slide on UHMW tape on their bottoms while the bottom two drawers run on standard slides.
But where do the bits go?? Do they just roll around in there? ——Nope, I use the bit holders that Lee Valley includes with their bits (they just screw on the the bottom of the drawer). See here for info.
I found it helpful to use a label maker in the shop for various things (labelling power tool cases, hardware storage etc..) and for this project every router bit has a label next to it so that I don’t need to measure the roundover or dovetail bits to find the right one.
