All my sandpaper for my sanders, and my sheets of sandpaper were all shoved into a drawer. After putting up with the hassle for over a year i finally got around to doing something about it. Idea is not original, i found many similar.

Used up scraps of plywood, ( seriously need to find more projects to use them up)

My first successful project using a dado stack, usually use a router for dados, but the base on my goto router is screwed up.

12” deep, 16 3/8” wide, 18” tall ( with small base)

• Top Left – is for my BnD Mouse pads

• Bottom Left – is for 5” ROS pads (if i need a new pad i remove old and drop sander down on dowels and new pad is automatically lined up with dust holes)

• Top Right – is random stuff, belts, some scotchbrite pads, my foam sanding block, small pieces of paper for a smaller foam block ive lost track of.

• Bottom RIght – is for full sheets of paper.

Need a few more “shelves” but ran out of scraps of the correct size.

Plan on making a few similar sized cabinets using the same concept with the dados, as a bank behind my miter saw.

Nice organizer, Justin. I like the adjustability of the shelves. Are you kicking yourself for not doing it sooner? ;-)
Thanks for sharing and have a Merry Christmas!

Looks a lot like the one my Dad built for his shop.

Tug, you’re building a lot of stuff lately that I want to copy!

Nicely done. Nothing like a little organization in the shop.
