I build this small tool caddy for on my desk. Because it's always a mess, my tools are laying everywhere.
Now with my tool caddy I have a place to put all of my tools.
And because I have 100 subs on my youtube channel you can download the plan for free.
Step 1: The Design
To design my tool caddy I used fusion 360. I started by taking all the tools that where laying around on my desk.
Then I was thinking about the layout and started with measuring my tools so they would fit well. I made all of the spots the same so the tools don't have a particular place.
If you can't design this for your own tools you can download my free plans.
Step 2: Cut All the Parts
The wood that I used is 18 mm plywood. I cut it out on my table-saw.
You can find the cut list in my plans.
Step 3: Drilling the Holes
After I cut out all the parts I put the paper on the wood with removable glue.
You can see on the paper where you need to drill.
Step 4: Scroll Sawing
There are some parts that you need to further cut out on the scroll saw.
I also glued these papers on the wood with removable glue.
You can see on the paper where you need to saw.
Step 5: Rounding Over the Edges
I round over some edges with my edge router, like the handel, but it's not necessary.
The bigger round overs did i on my disk sander.
Step 6: Screw It Togeter
I started with screwing the sides onto the bottom. Then I screwed the middle piece in place.
After that it's important that you first screw the 3 back pieces before the other side, otherwise you can't screw them anymore.
Step 7: Old Metal Saw Blade
To cut the tape I used an old blade of a metal saw.
Step 8: Fill It and Use It
This is my first instructable. If you make one yourself you can always send me a picture of it. I hope you like it!
