French fitting is the term used when toolboxes, cabinets, and drawers have fitted compartments that outline each tool.  Gun presentation cases are also commonly French Fit to the outline fo the gun.  There are a lot of ways to make a French Fit case or tray.  As a CNC’er, you’re in a position to carve such custom trays out of wood or a variety of other materials.  If you want to store your tools in French Fit Cedar, that’s pretty easy to do.  The cedar is said to have good properties to keep the tools from rusting.

A more modern alternative would be foam.  Here’s a great set of photos of how aerodark on the PM boards stores his measuring tools in foam:
