This is certainly not one of my prettier projects, but it sure is practical. You can see that this is a wall mounted (actually door mounted) storage rack for sandpaper.
I always use my sheet sandpaper a quarter sheet at a time so I also built a special device for tearing sandpaper sheets into quarters. It is a simple block of oak with a hacksaw blade mounted to each side. In the middle a piece of wood is positioned such that the distance to the edge is just right on one side for one tear and just right on the other side for the other tear. Works great. I can easily tear 2 sheets at a time and I get a virtually perfect tear every time.
Every shop needs these 2 items.
