DIY: Bit Box Tutorial By: Joanne Scott
Y’all. Seriously. This DIY: Bit Box tutorial has been in the works for DAYS… ok really, weeks. I started it before my bout with the death flu, then the monsoons came and killed whatever ounce of motivation I had. But – IMHO – it was worth the wait!
I have a few tack trunks… My big Burlingham tack locker and the DIY rehab Warner’s trunk live at the barn… and I have a handmade tack trunk in my garage that is too sentimental for barn life… plus a few Rubbermaid totes and a Stanley-type trunk that also reside in the garage. Alas, with all of these options, I didn’t have a practical way to store bits.
Since entering DQ-land, I haven’t had the need for my variety of hunter bits but I refuse to get rid of any of them. They were stored in an old shopping bag in the back of my SUV… because you never know when a DQ will want to switch from a loose ring French link to a… Waterford? Elevator? Ha! Enter my “bit box.”
