I have a pile of frequently used tools that reside pretty much permanently on my assembly bench. And I’m constantly having to move the “pile” around to make room for various assembly projects. So I looked around the shop for something to keep them all in, and found a little tote that one of my kids made at a kid’s project clinic at the big box store (about 15 years ago).
I cut a block of pine to fit, and drilled holes for my bits. Couldn’t leave well enough alone, and pretty soon I had holes, cutouts, and recesses for each tool in the tote. When I came back to it the next day, I decided to take it one step further and added a little pine pocket on the side for my folding rule.
Simple little solution, and a good memory thinking of my kids every time I reach for it.
Edit – after some comments about other tools, I’ve added a picture of my shop apron, and all the tools I keep in th apron. This tote is specifically the tools I keep on the assembly bench, to complement what’s in my apron.
