Micro Mesh Sanding Pad Storage Box

I just bought some micromesh sanding pads for pen polishing and wanted to make a storage box for them so they don’t get all mixed up during use. I did that for my different sandpaper grits so I though this would work well too. Pull one out…use it ….......and put it right back… so they stay in order.

I made the box out of box elder.( I have a big stack right outside the shop door). It holds 9 – 2×2 pads

It is 3 1/8” x 4 1/4” x 2 5/8” high and finished with clear semi gloss enamel.

cheers, Jim

Is that red tinge in the wood natural?
Great work

Wow, that real organization. I made one for some pads once and threw them in there. Yours have colors, numbers and a lid. Well done for great organization Jim.

Good idea Jim, I always get mine mixed up even with the different colors. Send some box elder over please.

Jim, I have to say that is a LOT nicer than the flimsy little metal rack I have for mine.

Nice job

Thanks for sharing!
