This was today’s project. A storage box for the workshop to hold my various grits of sandpaper. Now I know where to look for my sandpaper instead of sheets and partial sheets scattered all over the place. It was built to accommodate the standard 9”x11” sheets. Conveniently located between my shop stereo system and my scroll saw.

Nice one Trev – I have had one for quite a few years that I got from jointech, worth its weight in gold.

Well, belg1960, to cut the arcs on the dividers, I just used the plastic lid from an empty (large) coffee can and drew the arc, then cut the first one out on the scroll saw. After the first one was cut, I just used that as a template to draw the arcs on the remaining shelves.. simple and quick!

Trev, I thought because they all looked so even that perhaps you made a template and then routed the rest. But quick and dirty works great too. Thanks
