    I found this cool little sewing needle storage tube on-line. $2.99US with free worldwide shipping. Mine arrived yesterday, and I'm really impressed. It smells like some sort of hardwood, and the fittings are brass. There's no way I could make one of this so cheap in my shop.

    I might buy a couple more to store other stuff in. They definitely look and feel more bushcrafty than my plastic 35mm film tubes, although they might get lost easily if dropped on the ground.

    The brass is thick enough on the bottom section that I think I could machine in an o-ring groove. I think I might make a tiny fire kit in one with a small ferro rod and some vaseline cotton balls.

    The free shipping is slow. You might not get them before Christmas.

    Nice.

    I drilled out a dowel and made one just to see if I could, and I also use the Pentel pencil lead containers for needles in some of my kits.

    Google “toothpick case” you’ll find a million options for these.
    I keep my meds in one on my keychain, with some rice grains to keep moisture under control (I bike commute in all weather and had some humidity issues)

    What I use looks nowhere near as nice. I use one of those small travel size containers of pain medication. Think the one I use is an advil container, but there are many similar ones, just a short round cylindrical plastic tube with a twist on cap. I keep a sewing needle, and a couple doses of various meds in it. Works great, especially for the $1.50 or whatever they cost these days.
