I recently had some down time between projects and decided to make something for myself for a change. I’m starting to get a pretty good selection of router bits and I’m tired of them all being thrown into a box banging up next to each other. So I decided to build a couple of router bit storage boxes. I saw this tip in Wood Magazine I believe. The bit support grid is actually a drop ceiling light grid. It has 1/2” holes and is perfect for 1/2” shank router bits. I will be making 1/2” square pegs with holes in the center to place in the grid for my 1/4” bits. I was given a Rockler dovetail jig and decided to try it out on these boxes. The jig seemed sort of flimsey and I’m not real impressed. If I do many more I will probably invest in a better jig. I used some walnut that I had laying around and for finish I used gloss laquer which speeded up the finishing process since it dries so fast.
