The nice thing about having a garage based shop is that your neighbours are always coming over and asking for things. “Please fix my mirror”, “please refinish this little table”, etcetera etcetera.And off course I love helping out. Plus its a nice ego boost.

So my favorite neighbour and good friend needed a little box for his dremel bits and accessories so I made him this. Nothing fancy but he was extatic. Apparantly it was just what he needed. ASnd that made me feel good.

Smart idea to organize your Dremel stuff.
I need to make one of those to sort out all the Dremel stuff I have sliding around in a drawer.
Thanks for sharing your idea.

Great idea I may have to do the same for my dremel bits and what not. Did you use a drill press to punch the holes in the bottom? What’s the simplest way to ge all th holes spaced appropriately?

Thanks

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

@ Jethro: I just marked out a 1/2” grid centered on the base (3/4” stock) and started drilling. All 169 holes. No drillpress. Yah, it took a while. I used an 1/8” bit and the holes are 1/2” deep.

I did something much like that. I tipped the drill holes about 30 degrees, to make it easier to see and grab the bits. Little bits- big fingers-

Nice box!
