Screws and Nails Storage Box

I was fed up with the cheap, plastic storage boxes for storing screws - they always seem to break at the hinges of crack. So I thought I’d build a wooden box to hold them with a section for some tools.

I had some plastic containers which were a good size to hold a decent amount of screws, and I liked the idea of being able to remove them individually.

The box was made from pallet wood (lid), wood from an old salvaged shoe rack (sides) and some tongue and groove cladding (bottom). Hinges and rubber feet were from a local DIY store and the handle, metal corners and front clasp were salvaged. Finished with a clear varnish.

Total cost of this build was about £2.50.
