This is a simple box with dividers for my wife to use for storing different colors of stained glass. It was made from a sheet of 3/8” and a sheet of 1/4” plywood I had in the rack in the barn. She did not want it painted or finished so that is the way I left it. It seems to work out okay under her work table- just fits. The dividers are removable in case she wants to change the spacing

Really nice i did something similar for my Dad. He also does stained glass and has accented some of my projects with his work.

Excellent space saver. Something I need to make for myself to store folders and other stuff.

very good idea Jim. my wife has contemplated on getting into doing some stained glass projects. Is there a lot of glass shards from cutting, and do you have an exhaust fan or something for the soldering of the lead?? Thnx in advance.

Hi Roger. I was worried about the glass chips and suggested she cut them out doors rather than her craft room, but that is where she does it and she vacuums a lot because there are chips when cutting it. The soldering does not seem to be a problem- not much smoke with the solder she uses. She is getting real good at it. She has a 2 wheel grinder and the water does collect a lot of the ground glass. She filled this storage box right away! Some day I’ll post a frame I make for one of her projects.

Dave, I have a storage for 1/4 sheets of sandpaper already but my drawer of full sheets is a bit unruly. I may take your advice and made a sandpaper storage box as well! Thanks for the noe…........Jim

Appreciate the info Jim. I’ve always liked stained glass and/or wrought iron within wood projects of any sort.

Jim, you have a lucky wife.
Looks good, nothing like order in the materials and tools.
In this way she can work free and this is where it gets really fun.
Nice job Jim, sorry to be not arround so much lately but life is really busy and I try to hang in.
Best thoughts my friend,
