bowling ball bag for tool storage

Alert reader John Hagerman rolled us this striking tip after he saw our tip on gutting tool cases. He has another solution for bulky tool storage: an old bowling ball bag makes a great portable home for your circular saw. The saw easily slides in and out of the zippered opening, so there’s no more coaxing it into that molded plastic case and fumbling with those stubborn plastic snaps. And there’s plenty of room for spare blades, a rip guide and the blade-changing wrench. So, if you’re spend-ing more time building frames than bowling them, nab a secondhand bag for a couple of bucks at a yard sale or secondhand store.
