    Default Cheap, easy, and quick DIY way to organize your toolbox and work

    In my never ending quest to optimize the shop's organization and storage solutions, I found myself in need of some more drawer dividers. Instead of spending more money and waiting on shipping times, I opted to build my own. I modified cheap 1/8" thick flat stock using a chop saw with an 1/8" thick blade to achieve the new desired drawer dividers.

    I will let the photos do the explaining:

    ***In no way do I advocate the storage of cutting tooling in this manner as it could damage the cutting surfaces***

    Quick, cheap, stout, and DIY, does it get any better?

    Cool and if you ever need to block a vehicle up it's strong enough to hold it.

    That's pretty dope. Probably a bit of a Maslow's hammer scenario... when there's a pile of flat bar and a chop saw right there... why not. Anyone with some 1/8" hardboard and a table saw could replicate it too.

    We have purpose-built drill bit and endmill organizers that store them the same way at work. As long as you don't slam the drawer open and closed repeatedly its fine. Even if you do, the web would be the only thing to hit the organizer. The cuttings edges on those big bits should be fine. I wouldn't put endmills in there all loose, but if you dont throw away the plastic covers they'd be fine too.
