The first two pics are a little cedar box I made, where I wanted to try a couple new things; gluing the top and bottom on, then cutting off the lid on the tablesaw, and making a friction fit liner for the lid. I use this box to store benchdogs and my dovetail gauges. I’m pretty happy with the outcome.
The second two are a benchtop carry-all. I wanted to make a small version, before I make my wife a full size box for her gardening tools. The sides, dividers, and handles are maple, and the bottom is red oak.
The last two are a drill bit rack I put together. My bits and screw gun tips, etc, had been a miserable mess, and finding whatever I wanted was generally a challenge. Now everything is there within easy reach. Should have made this years ago!

Look great. I am doing the same type of things over the next couple of weeks in my shop. Thanks for sharing with us. Cheers.

All are very nice, but I really like your easy to find bench tool racks. Got me thinking.
