Battery Storage Boxes



Okay, finally carved this baby down to a manageable size.

(And since the various Proofgrades that we have to work with are different thicknesses, it took a couple of iterations to pull off the effect I wanted.)

I did away with the fancy insides and went with a straight lift the lid off and drop the batteries in…it uses less wood, and takes less time to load. (It’s also a lot easier to build.)

I think it turned out looking a little bit like a building, so the continuation of the battery boxes will be others of different heights…a slightly shorter one for the AAA bats, and maybe a low one with a pull out drawer for the 9 volts. Maybe make it look like a little cityscape. (Slightly different lid treatments?) We’ll have to see what they want to do.

Those look great! I’m constantly turning around looking for batteries at our house, and this kind of thing would TOTALLY help clean-up our random odds-&-ends drawer in the kitchen. I love the idea for creating a cityscape out of these too—such a great idea!


I like the idea of letting them decide what they want to be :slight_smile:


Oh, they definitely tell me. These didn’t start out to be buildings. :smile:


Are you talking to the battery storage boxes again?!?


Just listening. :blush:


I want!!!


FWIW, I listen to my beads (a lot!) so I’m in no position to judge :wink:


So which way do you guys think the battery looks better, facing right (maple in the center) or facing left (cherry) cause i can’t decide.


These look great! Will you be posting the pattern (please)?! I would love to make these!


What an awesome idea! I need these for so many things around the house like cans of food, batteries, toilet paper… ok, maybe not the last one but still, might not be a bad idea. :wink:


I’m still trying to decide whether to offer them through the catalog. :slightly_smiling_face:
(But if Glowforge isn’t interested, I’ll probably just post them.)


I like both - especially when shown all together, with the image alternating like that.


I like!!!
Great idea on the city scape!


Battery schematic symbol, and size, that is what is going on mine when they become available.


I may have to do something like this, though I somewhat expect the cats to fish out batteries for play.


Those are the best looking battery dispensers I’ve ever seen! FTW. :heart_eyes: :squee:


Whoa! Thanks! :smiley:


Those are fantastic! Such a great idea. Thankd for another inspirational post.


I so need one of these… :+1::smiley:
