Sanding station for holding sandpaper. One purpose was actually to try hand-cut dovetails. This is the first time I tried it, had varying degrees of success. I did use a $15 Irwin saw to cut them. Not really sure yet how much difference that makes. One thing I did learn – you cannot cut pins with the grain. They will break off.

Sure, of course. I put together some elements I saw in other sanding stations.
