Been planning this for years! Sick and tired of carrying black plastic cases in and out of my shop everytime I have a travel job. Tired of opening and closing those same cases everytime i need a tool in the shop. Problem solved. Things I use the most all in two portable boxes that fit into drawers when i’m in the shop and easily loaded into trailer when working off site. Even made a portable charging sation with programable timer to keep them fresh. Long overdue project!

Very nice. Good way to maximize the storage of things that can overrun your shop.

That’s a clever set of drawers you have built. I really like how you set up drawers at the work bench. I have a similar situation, might have to give it a try.

Now that you’ve finally gotten it done and were kind enough to share, maybe I can get it done!

Thanks,

Wow, that is sure a GREAT idea. Will link this and have to add it to my LONG list of workshop improvements. I really like the modularity of it and that it appears that stacking them allows for indexing/alignment fo the individual boxes. .

Thanks for posting.

did you add anything to the drawers to help them stack. I was thinking some type of base or alignment pin… just curious.
Nice work….
