5 minutes

Go to Easel Apps

Open the Box Generator App

Set your dimensions of the size of hold you will want

I chose 4″×4″×1″

Set you material thicknesss

Adjust the size of the tabs to your preference

3

Go back to Main Easel Screen

5 minutes

Adjust the newly generated box to fit your material size

Adjust the interactive tabs so they are placed in easy to remove and sand spots

4

Place circles for bits to fit in

5 minutes

Draw 1 circle set to a fraction larger in size then your bit

For example I made my tool holder for 1/8" bits or (0.125") I made the circles 0.130" to allow for wiggle room and the bits to fit well.

Copy and repeat your circle to as many positions on the one top board of your box

5

Time To Carve

10 minutes

Ensure your material is clamped securely

Cut out your new bit holder box

6

Assembly

10 minutes

Once cut out

Remove the parts from the material skeleton.

Sand of the tabs, do any fine sanding to clean all edges up

I used crazy glue to assemble the box.

Start with the base and glue the 4 × 1″ high sides around it

Finish with gluing the top down

Finally Insert all of your bits for easy access storage

great organizer. just one question, where do you get those colored rings on the bits? can they be purchased separately from the bits and what are they called?

those colored rings come preinstalled with certain bits. Typically, you will see this installed on super small PCB bits. https://www.inventables.com/technologies/solid-carbide-upcut-fish-tail-spiral-bits
