In an effort to get my shop organized and make more room in the drawers, I decided to make a couple of caddies for all of the sandpaper. It seemed as though I could never find the right grit when I needed it so I took a little time and some scraps from other projects and made these two. I made sure that they fit nicely in the drawer of the sanding cabinet that I just finished building. This will put all of my sanding and finishing supplies in one cabinet I’m going to post the sanding cabinet next.

Nice looking caddies. The full sheet caddy looks very similar to the one I made a couple of months ago.. I’m lovin’ it.

Great little organizers, did you put a back at each level so the papers cant get shifted back?

I did put a back on them. I also put a spacer block inside each slot so the paper would stick out just the right amount.
