So, I posted to a forum post last week regarding router bit storage. It got me thinking that I really need something better than the “system” I have now. Yeah, I am one of those guys that kind of puts his bits in a drawer with no discernible order and then cusses when I can’t find what I’m looking for. Well…No more cussing for this guy!!
I just built this in about 30 minutes using an idea I found in an old issue of Shop Notes. Its ridiculously easy to put together:
Two pieces of scrap peg board, a scrap piece of 1/4 in hard board for the bottom and some scrap 3/8” x 1/2 ” pine for the spacers. I used two 1/4” dowel pieces inserted through the top and bottom pegboard pieces to keep the holes aligned while I cut them to size. A little glue and some pin nails to keep it together and speed up construction and VIOLA!!! a nifty storage solution for my router bits. I made another one for my 1/2 shank bits using the same build technique but I predrilled 1/2” holes over the 1/4” pegboard holes, keeping the whole thing together with the dowels while I drilled it.
