Puzzle Tray

Puzzle TrayWe like doing puzzles, but they tend to get knocked all over the place. This is a quickie prototype made from salvaged redwood from a swing set and a piece of hardboard. It has four trays for pieces. I left the ends of the board and the trays open so you can slide pieces off of them. If it works, I'll get smarter about the size and use nicer wood.

MDF Drill Bit Cabinet (w/o a door) for French Cleats

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


MDF Drill Bit Cabinet (w/o a door) for French CleatsI finally have a place for my drill bits! I got tired of opening a drawer and pulling out a plastic container to find my bits.This houses my forstner bits, twist bits, spade bits, step bits, various countersinks, and some auger bits.The build: A simple box minus one face of MDF + some 2-1/2” x 1-1/2” pine with one face trimmed at ~30deg (I think it was 30. Hard to remember). The labels are just some tape because (a) I wanted to be able to read the black text ink which was impossible if I wrote directly on the pine and (b) easy to change it up if I decide to re-write in the future. A quick coat of poly just to provide a tad of protection.The twist bit shelf houses 2-3 of each size because I buy cheap twist bits in bulk and break them all the time. Now, when I snap a bit, this allows me to quickly get back to the work because I have another of that size in the cabinet. Later, after the flow is gone, I can go dig a replacement out of the drawer and put it in the cabinet.This was a very tedious build. The main idea was quick and easy to implement but drilling the necessary holes in (a) the right sizes and (b) the right spacing for all the bits was time consuming—especially for the twist bits. If I were to do it again, I think I'd drill the majority of the holes with one size that “fits most” and then only drill a special size hole for the much larger bits.Maybe, one day, I'll build a plexi or acrylic door for it but, for now, I wanted to move on to other projects.
