I swear, this is my last project this week…lol Went down to clean up from earlier today when I built the saw blade storage project. Got to staring at the last few scraps of the plywood I had salvaged a while back and the next thing I know…poof was working on this thing. Used tablesaw to cut the 1/4” dado’s (Sorry Jim, just couldnt face using the router again…lol) and tacked it together with 1/2” brads. All of it was from scrap pile, so cost was minimal.

There’s no project more satisfying than a “free” one!

Buster I think you need to find a phone box to get
changed in, :)
Very practical way of storing sheets of abrasive.
Do you not get abrasives in the roll? We get ours in 5, 10 or 25
meter rolls and wet n dry in sheets.
