After seeing how organized all you other LJs are, I was ashamed of how unorganized I was. So I was motivated to do something bout it. The Sand paper cabinet was my design and the tool cabinet was from Wood Magazine. It was all made with some scrap plywood I had been saving for just such project. Now that I have all this space, I am perplexed with what tools and supplies to put where. I think I have spent as much time rearranging as I did in the build.

Now that is just way to organized and way to clean. That can only mean that you need to make more stuff or get more tools!!!!! Looks good….

I think you need more sanders. 4 just isn’t gonna cut it. I for one think it looks great and as a plus it’s still out of the way enough that you don’t hit your head!

Way to go John. I really like the sanding center. For some reason, that project, like a dangling carrot, is always in front of me. You designed a neat unit with plenty of space for sanding supplies. As you know, I made the same tool cabinet. It should be named, “The Organizer”. I’m certain you already love it.

Well done John. A place for everything and everything in its place. Projects go much more smoothly when the tool you need is right at your fingertips.

Looks nice and organized! Now the key: Shop discipline to put everything back after you use it!
