Toolbox Organiser – From Novice to Expert
Thinking of a toolbox organiser project? How to go from novice to expert.
We see some extraordinary toolbox organiser and tool storage creations come through every day from our customers. Anyone looking for a more organised tool box and get a lot of inspiration from them. Some designs and projects using our foam toolbox inserts truly blow us away, some just look really cool!
To a novice, it may look a bit daunting as is the same with anything you are new to, the first question you ask is “How do I make mine look like that?” or “Am I picking the right foam for my toolbox” OR “Is this the right colour?”
We can certainly help steer you in the right direction for the first two questions when picking the tight toolbox organiser for your tool storage needs. Then the third question is for you to decide, especially when we have so many different colours to choose from.
How do I make mine look like that? The first step is to learn how to quickly and easily cut our foam. Once you have got a feel for it, you’ll be able to plan your project properly.
Am I picking the right foam for my toolbox? – There are two ways to go about this. First, it may be worth checking whether we have a pre-cut foam insert which fits your toolbox already. If not, then we need to explore which size would best fit your specific tool storage requirements.
Look for inspiration
Maybe you aren’t sure how to design your project to get the most organised toolbox possible using foam toolbox inserts. Or you just need a bit of inspiration to give you an idea of what your toolbox organiser could look like. Our customers on Instagram , Twitter and Facebook have created some awesome designs from Shadow Foam. We believe that these inspirational people are a great place to start when mapping out your project.
We share images of both our own and our customer’s projects daily. There is probably every toolbox with tools from every manufacturer on there, neatly organised with Shadow Foam, of course!
Finally, our YouTube channel with over 35,000 subscribers is where we have some real fun! Epic projects include a Power tool wall and even some fantastic Star Wars cosplay.
