I need to build a cabinet to house all of my abrasives and supplies. I was
thinking of storing all my sandpaper, sanders, stones, steel wool, etc in
I was hoping some foldks might offer advice and pictures of how they store
their items such as this. I'd like to hear some slick ideas for organizing
the sandpaper grits and steel wool grades.
Thanks for any advice. Please don't post pictures here, post a link or post
a picture in alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking.
In my basement workshop there is a wall cabinet installed by the former
owners. I keep nearly all my sticky stuff...house paint, spray paint, glue
etc. & bandsaw blades, paint brushes, steel wool, tool manuals, sandpaper,
etc. in it.

I just saw a tip on TV this morning and they stored the round sheets for ROS in
a plastic computer disk case (the old 5.25 type). These should still be
available at office supply stores.
There is a thin line between hobby & mental illness.

Back in the days when I had a lot of 8-1/2"x11" sheets of various abrasives
I stored them as follows:
An empty cardboard box that at one time held 12 bottles of wine.
A supply of manila file folders from my bottom desk drawer.
Used one folder for each grit, then filed folders in box.
These days, buy only 25, 50 or 100 pieces/size so supplier furnishes box
that gets used as storage device.
