    Thanks everyone for their time and thoughts! At least for the time being, I decided to make something that would be portable and hold a fair number of tools. Many of you said they’ve gone through several iterations to get to their “final” (at least for a while) design. I have a good amount of floor space, but pretty limited amount of wall space. Anyway, here’s what I made for now. It’s in a tote that I have on a roll around cart and holds 32 tools. 244C50D6-2717-42BF-BBBB-9436E393E014.jpg

    I use a Sharpie and write something on the handle end top. You can see the "1/2" and "5/8" on my home made ones. The common Sorbys I write something on the cap. Lots of tools are different enough. Yes, lots of time is sometimes wasted Easter egging for the gouge that I know I put in that specific tube......

    Thanks, Bruce. That is really nice. Very much like the one Dick Mahaney built. I will check into the kit!
