This is a paper sorter / mail box I make for some local teachers. It is designed to hold 8.5×11 sheets and has a book shelf on the bottom.

It’s 36 high, 37.5 wide and 11.75 deep. Made from 1/2” ply. Dividers are 1/4” tempered hard board. The back is 1/8” tempered hard board.

Nice, going to fit a lot of paper in there. Teachers shap the minds of our future leaders. Gotta be nice to them.

BTW Interresting picture. “Missing Digit WorkShop” Sounds like there’s a story behind that one.

Looks like it will be a very useful piece of cabinetry. Projects that make life more organized are great!

Fredf: Sorry for the late reply. The dividers are slid into a 1/4×1/4 dadoes on the outside and finger jointed for the 3 middle supports.
