gee-dub, the foam that you have your foster bits resting in is that the stuff from Fastcap (Kaizen)?

No.  Just some black closed cell foam that came as packing materials around something at work once upon a time.  Kaizen would certainly work.  I just cut it to size and glued parts together with some DAP Rapidfuse that was getting old.  I had to either use it up or toss it ;-)

That looks like some great storage. I baddly need to address my drill press storage. I toss everything in 1 drawer and i know the loose forstner bits are getting dinged up as a result.

Things look more 'done' with pulls and catches.

I used magnets and washers recessed but, a bit proud to leave and even reveal.

I bought two lid stays but, one is more than adequate.

I still need to make the inserts but, other duties call today.

In your second pic, the ratio is not 50/50 tongue and groove but precisely 4 layers of ply for the tongue. What is your formula and reasoning?

My formula was a 1/4" tongue.  The offset in the adjacent piece is dictated by the thickness of the material.  My reasoning was laziness :).  By using a known dimension on undersized ply I could do all the joinery with 2 bits.  A 1/4" for grooves (including the door panels) and a large straight bit and a sac-fence for the rabbets (including the rear rabbet to accept 1/2" BB ply backs).
