I have lots of sanding discs for my random-orbit sander, in a variety of different grits. But until recently, the discs would get mixed up, and finding the right one required some searching.
SANDPAPER ORGANISER. I needed a better way to keep all my sanding discs organised and within easy reach, so I came up with the simple sanding disc storage tower you see here. Built from scrap MDF and Masonite, it has seven compartments to organise 125mm-dia. sanding discs. Or, as you can see in the inset photo, you can remove a divider if you need to increase the capacity of a compartment.
BUILDING THE BOX. Construction of this storage box is very straightforward. Just cut the sides, top, bottom and back to size from MDF. Now cut rebates and trenches in the sides using the table saw. There’s also a rebate on the back edge of the top, bottom and sides to accept the back panel. Then glue all the parts together.
Finally, cut the dividers from Masonite to fit in the trenches in the sides, and slide them in place to complete the organiser.
