In between super high quality, museum caliber, uber-fine projects, I like to do one or two shop projects. :) Here’s a simple sandpaper organizer with lots of parts. I picked up the tip of adhering sandpaper to (free) paint stirrers to create simple but effective sandpaper files. I also like the use of beveled slats for hanging storage. This is how I hang cabinets. In this project I used 1/2” ply (versus 3/4”) for the hangers and it seems to work fine. I also made a gluing/nailing jig-fixture to make assembly of the trays easier.

Ha Ha… I cut the bottoms first, since they are all the same depth I only had the change the width for the narrow trays. The same depth setting is used for the sides of the dividers. The only critical measurement was the width of the front/back dividers for the large and narrow dividers. Built an assembly jig, cut to fit the first set and used those to repeat.
