My first post on the forum, yay! I made something useful that I can share. Got the glowforge a few weeks ago and I’ve been enjoying it a lot.

This is the Illustrator file in case you want to make modifications, I left the numbers as text so you need to expand them before cutting: drill-bit-organizer.ai (152.3 KB) and here is the SVG if you just want to use it right away. I scored the guidelines instead of engraving them because it gave me a cleaner, darker line and it was faster:
