My wife needed a better means to store handouts for parents and bus drivers as they came to her office. So I created this out of pine. Its not much but it works.

I usually like to read some text describing what is in the photos but your series of photos showed enough steps and logical progression that it kinda just flowed…thanks for posting this. I am sure she will be pleased with the result.

It looks like what I need to build for my sandpaper sheet assortment. Using he Scary Sharp system, I have a lot of steps between 50 and 2000 grit. Mine, of course probably won’t look as good as yours! I’ll bet your wife enjoys it and gets a lot of good use out of it.

It’s a simple and great project! Inspired me to do something similar for a “re-build” of a small pine chest I made my wife a few years back.
