Modular Router Bit Organizer
As my router bit collection grew, I needed an easy way to organize the bits and protect the carbide cutting edges. So I came up with a modular organizing system, see photo.
The system consists of 2″-square MDF “tiles” that hold the bits. The tiles keep the cutting edges from hitting each other. For large-diameter bits, I drilled a single, centered shank hole. For smaller bits, you can drill several holes in one tile. I even mounted a pair of dowels in one tile to hold extra collets. The individual tiles make it easy to rearrange and expand the system as you add new bits.
