Completing my set of storage boxes for various sandpaper types, this one is to hold 5” discs for my ROS.

With a goal of sitting on a shelf in a normal cabinet, two sets of disks can be stored front to back, and with six drawers, each holding a 3/4” stack, there is more storage here than I expect to need.

I made the case from 1/2” cherry plywood, using tablesaw cut lock joints as an experiment in reducing hardwood trim. The face is solid cherry edging, as are the drawer fronts. This time I thought ahead and mounted the left/right trim pieces before cutting the slots for the 1/8” hardboard drawers.

Love the face/drawers being one single piece of cherry and the cascading pulls! Scroll saw to cut the drawers?

Just a thin kerf (0.100”) tablesaw blade. I didn’t get it perfect, but did try to pay attention to the order of cutting frame pieces and then drawer front pieces.

Thanks for noticing!

Excellent looking piece, the descending knobs really take it up a notch. As for space you will probably need more. I made a tape holder 4 feet long that I thought would be enough. It grew to be just under 10 feet somehow. LOL.
