Ep. 2 | How to Build a Router Bit Storage Case

This year I'm going to start everything off with a pond hockey project! A pond hockey goal is great for when you want to play pond hockey when you can't find a goaltender. All you need to make this is 4- 2x6's boards that are 8' in length and a box of wood screws. I started out by cutting 2 boards to 72", 2 boards at 24", 2 boards at 45" and 3 boards at 2.5". The 72" (back/crossbar) and 24" (sides of goal) boards can be used to make the box portion of the goal and the 45" (goalie front/back) and 2.5" (goalie middle braces) boards are used to construct the "goalie" in the center. Once you've screwed everything together with your 3" exterior screws, you can combined both piece together by attaching the goalie portion to the crossbar. This should leave a 12" opening on each side of the goal. Those 12" openings are how you score goals. Now you're all set to take this guy out to the ponds and play some games with your friends!

This week I'm getting all of my router bits organize with this easy to build router bit storage case. All you need to build this project is 2- 1x4' pieces of pine at 8' long, a sheet of 1/4" thick 2'x4' plywood and a piece of 12"x12" plexiglass. I started by ripping my 1x4's down to 3" wide and then cut 7 pieces at 11.25", 3 pieces at 4" and 1 piece at 12" long. I cut the plywood and plexiglass to 12"x12" (front and back). I assemble the main frame using some 1 5/8" wood screws and attached the plywood/plexiglass to the frame with some 3/4" long screws. The trays required 1/4" holes at 3/8" deep on 3- 11.25" pieces to hold the router bits (my router uses 1/4" shank bits). Once you have all your trays drilled and assemble, you can put your router bits into place and slide the trays into the case. Now you have a nice little case to hold all of your current and future router bits!
