None of these worthy of posting as a project but may give someone else ideas.
So kudos to all those who gave me inspiration and ideas to get some shop furniture built.

Above is a small parts/hardware storage etc. Made with 3/4 sanded plywood and 1/2” plywood scraps for the bins. Removable labels with peel and stick felt feet.

Above is an outfeed table. Wood Whisperer design. Two layers of 1/2” plywood make up the top. Sealed with clear shelac and 5 coats of wipe on poly.

Above is a cheap and dirty sled. Works well and spot on accurate.

And lastly, this was this past weekend’s project. No more storing sandpaper in a drawer. Stores full sheets, sheets for sanding blocks, ros and palm sander sheets and lastly foam sanding blocks.

Shop projects are those necessary things that happen that aren’t glamorous, beautiful works of art. Still, a well organized shop is a happy shop, IMO. I think I will borrow the small parts shelf (especially the bins) and the sand paper storage shelf ideas.
