Cool Tool Box


Recommended Posts

I was looking on line for some ideas for a small tool box with several flat drawers for storing small tools like knives and pliers.  Ran across this neat item from an art supply company called Display2Go.  I have no association with this company or anyone in it, just passing along a good idea.  image.jpeg.40313986776906af26722ff890faad8d.jpeg

15.75x9.75 inches outside dimensions.  Price is around $12 + shipping.  I was thinking of getting one or two to keep my most used tools in on my workbench.

I love it - and the price but I can't find it on their web page.  Spent 20 minutes w/o success - can you provide a link to the catalog page?  Searched under tool drawers, drawers, storage drawers -  w/o success as well as scrolling all over their various categories.

Thanks,

Kurt

I got 2 sets for myself and another 2 for a buddy.  I decided that I needed to line the drawers with felt as the wood just seemed to be an unfinished storage system - not knocking the quality or anything I just like my tools store neatly.  So I went to the local Hobby Lobby with my 40% discount coupon (never go there w/o the coupon) and got some self-adhesive felt sheets.

 

The first photo shows the drawer on the right as it comes with the 4 dividers in place.  They are securely glued in place but only along their bottom edge and were easily loosened up with a few taps from a jewelers brass hammer and removed and set aside.  The felt was trimmed to size and adhered to the drawer bottoms.  With the thin felt the dividers still fit in place w/o interfering with the drawer closing.  I set all of the dividers aside for now as I don't think I will be using many of them if any.

 

Glad I got these - thanks for the heads up they are well worth the $$.

I got my 2 yesterday and they are really nice for the price. I got them for $11.95. I like the idea of the felt lining. I might use a couple of the compartments but the partitions are in the way for most stuff. I'll use some drawers for tools and some for fittings and parts.

I ended up buying a tool roll for all my files so they don't bang together in drawers, though finding one in the right size was actually pretty hard (only the same poor quality Chinese ones).  I found some on Etsy, and hand made in Montana too.

The quality is great and I was happy to spend the extra to support a small business.  They also will make custom size ones for not much more.
