Mind you it’s on some cheap 0.22" plywood I had lying around so the engraving is not as good as it could be on a better material.
I’ll share the file for this flat section only because I think the design for the box can be improved. I ended up mounting it at an angle and the tabs will vary depending on the material you use.
Oh, and if you were wondering the front holes are for reference. This is the Illustrator file in case you want to make modifications, I left the numbers as text so you need to expand them before cutting: drill-bit-organizer.ai (152.3 KB) and here is the SVG if you just want to use it right away. I scored the guidelines instead of engraving them because it gave me a cleaner, darker line and it was faster:
Incidentally, do read up on drill bit sizes because it turns out “number and letter gauge drill bit sizes” don’t match fractional-inch drill bit sizes. I was just looking at a set I have in the shop that uses the number system and I couldn’t join it to my organizer, and I’ve seen a lot of sets like that.
Thanks. I have piles of drill bits I’ve been meaning to organize, this looked like a great solution. You can just cut through the 1/2” (actually .455”) with a single pass at full power slowest speed, but I got better results with two passes at full power, 110 speed. Still had to pop out the pieces (most just needed a thumb push) and there was a little bit of cleanup. Not too bad. I feel like if the oak had been maybe 0.4” it would have easily cut all the way through. I just used some scrap I had lying around as-is instead of planing it down.
