Hello everyone!
Some time ago I had pending to make some box to have the drill bits. I had in a bag and thus could easily lose.
The idea was something simple that fits another drawer measures, and does not occupy much space.
Yesterday was my birthday! So take the time of day to get to work and take this as a gift.
It had Thin wood, I have not a planer, so I launched my circular saw. As just cut 2 “thick, I decided to do a lot of parts and then using glue for finishing the work.
The bottom is pine, and the cover is from algarrobo.
The cover system is shoe box, and I did so because I had no hinge to hand. Besides that I found most original way and serves to put there the bits being used. Assure it with a rubber band.
I did not give importance to match some perfection tables, since only watch bits that fall through the joints.
A fun job useful, and I had long slope.
Greetings to all and thanks for looking!.
