I’ve been meaning to build this for some time but just hadn’t gotten around to it. I was forever having to look around for my dust pan, fox tail, rags, etc. The other problem was trying to cut paper with a utility knife. This solves these problems. It’s made with 5/8” & 3/4” shop grade maple plywood and Birch edge banding, piece of 1 1/4” angle iron for the paper cutter & then painted to match the other cabinets in the shop, mounted with a french cleat with pegs on each end for hanging up the push broom. It’s nothing spectacular but a worthwhile project. Thanks for viewing!

Nice! I just saw this and did the same thing (took a pic of it with my phone). I need one of these deseperately and I figured I have enough scrap plywood to knock it out. Looks like it comes in handy. I can’t wait to knock mine out. Thanks for the pics, I love the design.

Came out good, which issue was this in? I have not seen it. I usually clean up when I can’t find a tool, sadly it was my TS once, LOL

Very nicely done.

If you’re like me, you’ll have trouble even keeping THAT clean and orderly ;-)

And … I love a good 16/32, when it sneaks into a picture :-)
