This is based on an article and plans in Woodworkers Journal Aug ‘09. Though I didn’t follow the plans exactly it’s pretty close. Made from 3/4” and 1/4” plywood with oak drawer pulls.

Nice job! I like the shelf up top. I need to build something like this. Right now all my sandpaper is in a woodcraft bag…

Good and useful project, I like the draw pulls. Holds in the sand paper and gives easy access.

Nice work. I still use a portable file box for most of my flat stuff and a shoe box for the belts and cylinders! ;0)

I’m like jack1. I made a sandpaper holder with an old milk carton, frame for hanger files, and hanger files. Label and you’re done.

What the heck is that next to it? Looks like an old radial arm saw with a teeny-tiny blade…

Stumpy, that’s one of the dado blades on the RAS, I used it to cut the 1/4” dado’s for the drawers. I sat the organizer on the RAS to take the pictures. Now it sits on my workbench.
