One of the future follow on project from the Norms Miter Bench project was to build in a sand paper organizer into one of the drawers of the bench.

In early February a fellow LJ KnotWright told me about a liquidation sale from the shutdown of a Dell production line. I bought a bunch of things but one of the jewels was a 2’x2’ bin for PC components on the assembly line. I looked at it, knew that it would fit in one of my drawers and immediately re-purposed it in my head. With all of the dividers and such it would make a great sand paper organizer! So I doled out the 15 bucks and here are the end results.

Most of the sandpaper you see there is from the bargain bin ($1.50/lbs) from a couple of the Klingspor stores in NC. Nice guys and great stores you should stop in if you get the chance.

That does look pretty good. It keeps your sandpaper in one location and you can readily see what you have instead of rummaging through a drawer. Good idea.
