As part of a minor shop re-do, I decided to start by upgrading my sanding supply storage. Here's the before, something my wife used to use for her craft paper. It works, but it takes up too room. image-3614755114.jpg I know how much you all love fine woodworking projects, so here is the first step in replacing the old. image-2177628802.jpg Enjoy. :)

Planned on letting ambient air/dust/light in the shop age that plywood naturally to allow the full richness to develop ;-0

I'd say it's finished then

A finish would only destroy the patina and distressed look you have so painfully endeavored to create. JMO. I'd leave it to the effects of Global Warming and climate change like you suggest. :yes:

Any build photos of this unit? :huh:

I was so inspired during this build I dared not stop and interrupt the creative flow for pics, sorry.

What highly refined method did you employ to mount the unit on the wall?

Pic doesn't show it but edges are chamfered and smooth.

It's sitting on the bench at this point, not sure where it's gonna end up yet.

I need a sandpaper storage rack

Can I have your "old" unit? :blink: I'll never be able to make such a fine woodworking piece as you have done with my limited skills and equipment, so maybe I could have the old one... please? ;)

You could make gobs of money by selling plans for that storage unit. Of course, plans should include pictures, materials and cutlist, drawings to include plan view, elevations, and section drawings. Be sure to include step by step fabrication details. Glossy 8x10's would be nice, and you could include a full size foldout poster. This could be a great retirement income.
