French Fit Tool Tray

After building my new toolbox, I needed to protect my tools from rolling around into each other and potentially damaging one another. I created a few quick and dirty tool tray holders using scrap plywood and a scroll saw.

French fitting custom locations for your tools is surprisingly easy. Simply layout your tools, trace around them, and then cut the shapes out on a scroll saw. I used a 1-1/4″ spade bit to create the finger holds to make removing the tools easier.
