This cabinet was built to hold my sandpaper, cabinet scrapers and sanding supplies. It was build from 1/4” and 3/4” oak plywood, 1/2” alder (drawer boxes), 3/16” hardboard (pull out trays) and solid oak edging. The oak scraps were leftovers from prior projects. The cabinet is 17.5” w x 12.25”d x 21” h. The first photo is the finished cabinet loaded with supplies. There are 10 pull out trays for 9×11” sheets of regular and wet dry sandpaper and 6 trays for sanding disks. The trays slide in dadoes. The pull out trays have a stop at the back (photo 4) to keep stuff from falling off the back. The two drawers hold an assortment of scarpers and hook shaves, woven sanding pads and sanding blocks. Construction on this cabinet was glue and screws. The cabinet will be mounted on the wall using french cleats.

very nice!

I keep telling myself I need to make one of those (and I do). seems like every time I have the materials, I don’t have the time ,and every time I have the time – I don’t have the materials at hand.

Thanks for yet another reminder!

PurpLev +1. Another problem I have is space because I want to include space for ros paper.

It looks great and very useful around the shop. Cool design on the pull out trays for easy access of the stuff needed. Great job!
