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

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

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 :-)
