all my bits, chucks, spindles, drills, and chargers at arms reach from the drill press. best thing i ever buit in my shop. everything stays organized and i dont have to search for the right tool to do the right job. i got a plan for this in a Fine Woodworking article in a past issue. the heavy doors that store all my bits are held up by piano hinges, anything else wouldnt hold up to the wieght. the drawers hold all my bit sets like expensive forstners and hole saws. i never realized how important drills and accesories are to a shop untill i made this case

Very nice Mike. I built a Drill Bit Case awhile back – but I really like what you have done here even better. Nice job and thanks for sharing it.

That is great Mike. How did you attach the case to the wall?

Nice going, Mike. I just built a drill accessory box myself using scraps and experimenting with pulls and slides and stuff. Yours kinda puts mine to shame. I’ll post it anyway. Back to the drawing board…

Not only is this extremely functional, but looks great as well! Nice job, Mike.

Awesome! What great inspiration for those of us (ME) that really could use some organization in the shop.

Awesome, Mike. And Bill, thanks for that link. My drill stuff is just all over the place. This is a really neat idea.

Hey, that is really nice! I think that another advantage to having a setup like this is that you can close the cabinet up when your doing some dusty processes, and keep everything dust free.

Great project.

I will have one of those cabinets when you can spare the time Mike. Only kidding.

Well done. Nice and organized. Much better than rolling around in a drawer, chipping up against each other.

Mike, I like it. If there’s one thing that gets me excited as much as tools, it’s organization. Furniture without function is just a meaningless wood conjunction. I just made that up. You like it?
