Small Parts Trays

By: Erich Lage
Keep the little accessories for your shop tools close at hand.

W210 007f01 It’s nice to have a place to hold small parts and accessories at different tools around my shop. I came up with the idea below to make small trays that attach to my woodworking machines using magnets. W210 005a02 W210 005a03 To make the job easier, I designed an easy way to make eight tray bottoms at one time. I used a simple template to rout the tray recess with a bearing-guided bowl and tray bit on an oversize blank. The steps above will walk you through the process to complete these. W210 005a01 With the trays done, all that’s left is to cut the backs for each tray, glue them together, and then add the rare-earth magnets.
