Tobacco boxes for tools

It is always preferable to avoid buying new boxes for tools, especially since so many of them are made of plastic. An alternative option may await at your local tobacco store. They usually have a lot of wooden boxes that they are willing to give away for free. With this method their professional waste is reduced, and so is your consumption!
