I just finished up the surprise swap. I follow Steve Ramsey on youtube and he just open a weekend workshop course I purchased. I decided one of the things I would make is a sandpaper cabinet. I changed up the design a little bit but not much. It is made of about 1/2 sheet of 3/4” ply. The shelving the holds the sandpaper in the middle of the cabinet is removeable so you can store more of one grit if needed. I just got a lathe and decided to make a couple thing on there. The first is a revolver pen made of bloodwood. Its neat click the top and the middle wheel spins. I also have been watching Eddie Castelin on youtube. He had a 4 sided box you make on the lathe. I decided to try my hand at this. It didnt turn out 100% like his cause I got my original setup off but I think it came out great. It is made of purpleheart, redheart(redwood), cherry, and poplar that I glued together and turned into a pen/pencil holder for the shop. Finished with Mylands friction polish.

Everyone needs some storage for the everyday stuff, sandpaper being one of the most universal of them. Good job on the storage, and the pen, and pen cup are gravy. Nice job.

Sandpaper storage is one of the most handy things you can have in a shop. You made a very nice one!
