Bill Duckworth's sandpaper cabinet features adjustable shelving and a built in paper cutter.


Plans badgeEvery home and business needs a cabinet for keeping important papers handy and properly sorted. Of course, the same thing can be said about the woodshop.

That's why woodworker Bill Duckworth, a former FWW associate editor, came up with this wall-mounted storage system for his shop's important papers - from 60-grit on up. It's a smart way to keep sandpaper flat, sorted and within easy reach. Bill's crowning touch is a built-in blade for cutting sheets to size for the sanding block.

The free dowload includes the original winning submission to the magazine's Methods of Work column, complete with annotated color illustrations. In addition, Bill's text clearly explains the cabinet's construction and features. He also proves that it's possible to talk about sandpaper without being abrasive.
