Tool Homes and The Design Process

So I’m a little bit of a fan about “every tool has a home, and a home for every tool“. I bought some Kobalt sockets from the local Big Blue Box. I then measured each tool and modeled them up in SketchUp.

Here’s what the model looks like:

Socket holder design (SketchUp)

This model will guide me as I lay out the drilling locations and gives me dimensions for the socket holders.  When I build the box to hold the socket holders, the model will serve as a guide for the wall dimensions, but I’m going to make the box elegant with dovetails and/or finger joints at the corners.  Those are time consuming to model in Sketchup.
