My wife wants a document organizer to put her students work in for them to take home or review. Anyone have any ideas on plans for one. I would like it to look nice as well as be functional

Stacking trays? Pigeon holes? File drawer? Vertical slots? How big, How many? A little more info would help.

Tom, do you want to make just one for your wife ?
or one for each student.

one organizer for her to put papers in for students to pick up. Pigon holes with a measurment of about 9 X 12 X 3. What I really am debating about is how to make the pigeon holes I figure I can cut rabbits for the for the shelves but was trying to figure out an easy way to put dividers in.
Thx

Cut dados for the shelves, then you can use 1/4 for the partitions. You could do stopped housing dadoes or you could do(i forget the name, slip joint?). Where you use 1/4 ply for “shelves” and partitions, and you cut a 1/4” groove on the back half of the shelves, and 1/4” groove on the front half of the vertical partition, and these 2 grooves slip into each other.
