How to make a versatile and TOUGH tool tote out of items around the house. This was inspired by and AWP tool bag that I purchased last year, and some Craftsman tool bags that I have seen at hardware stores. Enjoy!

Step 1: Materials Needed!

Picture of Materials Needed!
For this project you will only need very few items, and it shouldn't cost much at all. I made mine with everything I had at home.

You will need:

-Cardboard (And some paperboard for the pockets)
-Scissors (optional)
-Box cutter or Razor blade
-Tape Measure or ruler.
-Tools to fill it with :)

I created this using what I had on hand and it is very handy!

This is great! I have found some colorful duct tape in a hardware store and I'm thinking of making a knife case/knife roll so my 10" cook's knife and paring knives are organized in my bag whenever I come to class.
This is a great. I plan on making me one for my paint.

I needed a amp cover for my small bass amp and saw this instructable I plan to make it just the way your tool tote is made only use it upside down. to cover the small 12in cube amp leaving a slot in the bottom for a handle. Thank for the idea and inspiration

Cool! Send me pics when its done if you can, I would like to see it!
How is it holding up? Have you been usin it since you made it last month? Would love to hear about it!

Its been holding up pretty good, I have used it mainly to store basic tools for whenever I need to grab them and go. Its very handy, I used it to take parts up to my pole barn (shop where my power tools are) on my last project for instructables. Overall, the duct tape made a very sturdy bag!
you beat me in duct tape contest : [ good idea though!!!! ; ]

Thank you!

the best part is that you can customize it for whatever :)

i'll be making one soon for my guitar stuff (ie, pedals, cables, tuner, tools, strings)
it'll be a touring bag :)
