So I made this a couple of weeks ago, I was very tired of looking for sandpaper for various projects and they seemed to be everywhere they should be.

So I found this idea on Pinterest and I tweeted the dimensions so as as that it would fit in a misused wall cabinet that I have, I’ll try and repurpose these 2 double wall cabinets that I have for better urilitization.

Anyway back to the unit, it’s made of 1/2” MDF ( not my choice material but I was using scraps and need to clear out and make room for new material, the outer box is MDF but the divider pieces would be. Mix of 1/2” MDF and 3/4” plywood… Again what I had on hand.

The dimensions are about 12” high by 20” wide x 11” deep.

I set the organiser so as that it would accommodate all forms of sandpaper, full sheets, orbital sander discs, and belt sander belts.

The entire unit is made of a series of dados and rabbits and all the as paper rests on 1/4” plywood sheets that can be pulled out of the unit for easy access.

I know it’s not pretty but it’s extremely functional and I got a lot of experience using my dado stack..

Thanks for looking and if you need a organization idea for sandpaper feel free to use this one.
