    I had one made for me when I first started by the tech teacher at school. He made two of them like yours, and the last one I had him make runs the slots the other way. It holds all of those little templates and rulers very nicely!

    Very nice BIL! Did he just make one? Seems like he could have made us all one while he had the tools out.

    I have one very similar made by the husband of a quilting friend. She gave several of us one for Christmas a few years ago. They are great. Glad for you. Give your BIL a big hug.
