Ryobi 18V One+ Storage Box

Some of the Ryobi One+ tools come with rectangular storage bags and some don't, similar to how some of the tools come with batteries and some come bare. I looked into purchasing storage bags and they seem a bit pricy here in Canada (through Amazon.ca) so I decided to build my own storage box out of 1/4" plywood.

I am a member of the local Halifax MakerSpace (I'm a director actually) so I have ready access to the Space's Laser Cutter. I do a lot of design/cutting using Inkscape and the Laser Cutter so I decided to use that approach.

I designed my storage box to be close to the size of the fabric storage pouch. Adding a webbing strap handle to the outside means It's as easy to sling around as one of the fabric pouches.

To top it off, I was able to get some paint from my local Home Hardware that is close (not quite perfect) to the Ryobi yellow green that I wanted.

So I designed the box at home, cut the 1/4" plywood on the Laser Cutter, sewed the webbing strap at home, primed and painted everything and assembled it all with wood glue.

The design could also be made using more traditional fabrication methods, (e.g. reinforce butt joints cut on a table saw, etc.) but I like the repeatability of the laser cutter.

I put a piece of closed cell foam to pad the inside bottom and again laser cut a small slip cover box to hold the staples.
