I needed a project that I could practice creating rabbet’s (rebate’s) and dado’s. After seeing the project posted by Krisztian:

Click for details

I decided this would be both useful for me and good practice.

—Carcass is out of 1/2” ply, with a 3/4” center support.
—Shelves and back are 1/4” hardboard.
—pegs for the ROS pads are 3/8” x 3/4” nylon spacers (epoxyed).. I was going to use dowels but these let the pads slide on and off freely.

Great looking job! Be prepared for all your paper to curl up. Disks will not curl though.

This is a very useful project. It keeps your sandpaper organized and readily available. The dowels are a nice idea as well.

Thanks for the post.

I’m going to have to quit my job so I can have time to creat all these wonderful projects. Great idea. Especially the round sanding disk holder. If I have one more fall off the hook on the peg board I will scream
