I got fed up going out on site to install Kitchen cupboards and not being able to find anything,

So i made this suitcase like box with internal removable trays, it is all made from Plywood. The trays are 100mm square (4 inches) and 70mm tall (2 and 3/4 inches) I used suit case latches to hold the lid closed when carrying and an old kitchen cupboard handle. it works so well i might make a few more

I hope you all like this
Thanks, Hooky

Looks great, I got myself some large plastic organizers, a couple of years ago, that I can take with me. This setup sure gets you to a job with what you need and I am not dumping out a 3 # coffee can to find that last screw I need. The organizers worked so well, I built a compartmented shelf to hold them all. I emptied ten 3# coffee cans. Great helpful build.

Very nice, efficient and functional! Have always liked building my own boxes for things like this. I must have 15 tool totes, hardware boxes and pipe fitting boxes/trays! Keep building them, you’ll never regret it! And they’re sturdy enough to stand on when you need a little extra height. They6 stack so well on hand trucks and carts too! No end of benefits!!!

Very good idea! I especially like the fact that they can be taken out as picture 3 shows.
beats the @#$^ out of my fishing tackle box which always manages to have a screw or two stuck somewhere to prevent closing.

awesome. I used to install cabinets and I always was looking for a perfect hardware box. I’d get little plastic jewelry organizers which would work great for awhile until inevitably they’ed fall off the counter and smash all over the floor scattering hardware everywhere

That is a good. I might have to steal this plan and make one of my own. I especially like how you made the compartments separate so you can lift each one out to get to the parts and not have to pinch in the corners.

Thanks everyone for your comments, You are all welcome to copy as i made it up as i went along (so no copy write to worry about)

I agree with everyone who said that plastic ones or fishing boxes don’t work or break quickly ( i have several)

I sort of copied this from a screw box made as a metal case with plastic removable inserts (as these retail for $60 aus i couldnt afford to buy one)
