I made this box to hold my hand sanders and their sanding strips (Lowes sells them). The carcass is 1/2” birch plywood and the trim and the drawer are all pine. This could very easily be scaled up and made into a tool chest.

Neat. My sandpaper is so disorganized.
I need to stop by Lowes.

Nice organizational idea.
I like the patina on your bench. Looks well used and well loved.
Is that Abranet? If so, my favorite sanding mesh.

I love these little sanders. My fingers love them too. They are stiff enough for long runs and flexible enough to follow curves. For $5 you get the sander and 12 strips of sandpaper. It’s made by shopsmith and so far I’m impressed with how long the strips are lasting.

Nice branding – where’d you get the custom branding iron from?

Hi Dan,
I got it from Infinity stamps. You submit art work and they make it. I would definitely recomend getting the electris heater over the heat with torch one.
