LONG OVERDUE! Before I got into making things for other people this month, I decided it was time to make a few things for the shop. What an embarrassing sandpaper cabinet I had! Part of the motivation was that I bought a new Porter Cable R.O. Sander (which I love and will do a review on after I put a few more miles on it).
The two small organizers hold quarter sheet paper for my palm sander, and “5 discs for my R.O. The larger organizer on the right in the cabinet holds full sheets of uncut paper. On the shelf above these organizers, I built two small bins which hold my steel wool and assorted used paper, a couple sanding sponges, some wet dry paper, and emery cloth which I typically want to pull out and take to the project with me.
Material is all leftover scrap, cases are made of 1/2” oak veneer plywood, and the shelves are 1/8” hardboard from some old cricket scoreboards. I’ve left them unfinished so the next time I need to do a test or experimental finish I’ll have a piece ready to go.
