    Nice job on the 3D’s guys

    The 3Ds are great for mixing up storage options all in one box. It is a versatile box that can be used in any number of ways. Drill/drivers in the box, fasteners down below in the I-boxxes.

    I’m going for have to get myself some, looks like they are a practical solutions for carrying around drill / driver, impact and hardware, plus some hand tools all in one box.

    The problem I’ve been having lately cashing in for l-boxxes is that tools are just so much more fun to get. I am tempted to get a 3d with some i-boxxes though and maybe set up a trim work boxx.

    Wow that is very impressive. I never would have thought of using a router for the foam. I really like the setup with the 3d and the multi layers of foam in the top and then each drawer outfitted. Very slick.

    seems so simple and obvious now that I seen it

    I thought it was interesting too that he used a little torch to smooth the cut edge of the foam. Looks like it works well as long as you don’t over do it with the heat.

    I think his layouts are super organized but I don’t think they are as space efficient. I think you could get more tools into that volume of l-boxx if you sacrificed a little bit more on organization and a neat layout. It just seems like there would be a lot of foam space left in there. Super tidy though and very well done.

    Yes the idea is simple and universal (cutting foam), his fit and finish is really nice. I agree with Dan, he sacrificed efficient spacing for cleanliness.

    Wow, he goes all out and does a really professional job! Great find. I’ve been holding off for a year on using the foam inserts. Maybe one day…

    Yeah that’s amazing, wish I could be that organized. , never thought about the router either,

    The only problem I see is if he decided to add a couple of different tools,
    But I guess he could just make another layout
    Great find @Rovik

    Very organized, never would have thought of using a router also. Helps using a high density foam and the trick of burning the edges to smooth them out is slick.

    Nice find @Rovik

    Does anyone know what brand or from what source the foam he is using is? I’d be curious to know if it is a denser foam and maybe that’s why the router works well on it. I have some scraps of the stuff I’ve been using from Lee Valley, I’ll have to try my new Colt on it when it comes and see how well it routs. I think the Colt plunge would be perfect for doing that.

    Interesting using the router to cut the foam. Very nicely done.

    Thanks Frank, great find. Looks like there are different densities of foam in the pic on their site. The less dense stuff looks more like what I’ve used and the other looks quite dense. That may be why the router works so nicely for this guy. I’m going to try my foam to be sure but I’m thinking it might tear a bit more where it is fairly soft. We need a resident translator here at BTP.

    thats pretty sweet! I always assumed you’d need something like and xcarve or some other cnc to be able to cut foam for tools.

    That is neat looking. I can absolutely see using it for diagnostic tools and precision ones. For me sorting the pliers or wrenches not so much, mainly because most of them would not end up back in their slot.

    I like it and its clean for sure.

    Let me know how your test goes. I might want to try too. Would be nice to have miltiple trays in a single boxx – might even replace the metal rolling toolbox with l-boxx stacks
