Introduction: Cardboard Boxes for Earth Drill Bits
The drill bits of my earth auger arrived without a box to store them. They have been lying around my basement and I keep stumbling upon them. If I place them on a shelf they have a tendency to roll and fall. So I decided to construct some storing boxes out of cardboard to safely store them.
Step 1: Materials
For this instructable I used lots of sturdy cardboard, duct tape, scissors and measuring tape.
Step 2: Build a Rectangle Box
First I measured the diameter of the drill bit.
Then I shaped the cardboard to form a rectangle with slightly bigger edges than the diameter of the drill bit. I wanted the drill bit to have 2 cm distance approximately from the edges of the box.
I also added a sliding sleeve from cardboard to the top.
After that step I secured the bottom and top caps of the box with duct tape.
The box is ready to hold one drill bit.
Step 3: Build a Cylindrical Box
I also made a circular one just for fun.
This one had two moving sleeves, so it can open from both ends.
Step 4: Finished
I wrote on the outside of each box its contents for clarity.
The boxes are now ready for storage.
