How fast can I build storage boxes

I build storage boxes for screws and nuts in the fastest way with the tools that I have access to.
The goal is not to build the strongest box without speed is more important. These boxes should only be used in a larger drawer for organization. All the boxes with screws that I had before became so hard to find the right one.

Cool idea and clever execution. Using your idea why not make a square tube and glue up in the same way,, say 3 ft long. Then cut to depth and glue a bottom on? In this way you don’t have a dado that takes away space at the bottom.

Just a suggestion for the speed element. I have done it in the past and it works well, prefinishing the insides saves time if so inclined.

Good idea, but I would lose the round on the top of the box. Then it would take a lot of time to glue the bottom of all the boxes.

I took mine and put the bottoms on with glue then stacked to 3 feet. Put in pipe clamp and left overnight. Routed smooth the edges and done. Of course first I tried hot glue and this works okay, till bottom falls out. LOL. A learning curve was in order.

Still for others reading more than one way to accomplish a task. In this case speed is required. Most of my drawer organization is done one drawer at a time so the task is not that large. Doing a entire row of cabinet drawers all at one time would get tedious.

Like say making inserts for these drawers.

I have about 60 drawers to do and 10-15 boxes in each drawer :O
