In an effort to get my shop organized and make more room in the drawers, I decided to make a couple of caddies for all of the sandpaper. It seemed as though I could never find the right grit when I needed it so I took a little time and some scraps from other projects and made these two. I made sure that they fit nicely in the drawer of the sanding cabinet that I just finished building. This will put all of my sanding and finishing supplies in one cabinet I’m going to post the sanding cabinet next.

Great little organizers, did you put a back at each level so the papers cant get shifted back?

I did put a back on them. I also put a spacer block inside each slot so the paper would stick out just the right amount.
