Tab & Slot Tool Tote
Here's a handy carry-all for organizing tools. And it goes together without glue or fasteners.
This tool tote reminds me of the interlocking cardboard or sheet metal toys I had as a kid — the kind where you assembled them by "inserting tab A into slot B." Unlike those toys, this tote isn’t some flimsy box. Once all the parts are together, they interlock to form a rigid, sturdy assembly. What makes this even more amazing is the tote isn’t glued and you don’t need any hardware or fasteners to build it. Customized for You. Besides the easy assembly, you can customize the dividers and tool holders to suit your needs. In fact, if you’re like me, you might make two or three of these easy-to-build totes for specific tasks like hanging pictures, doing household repairs, or organizing craft supplies. And if you want to change the layout of the tote later on? No problem. The tote comes apart just as easily and quickly as it went together in the first place.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
