Paper cardstock letter organizer

I had a bunch of cardstock that was easily ignored because they were just stacked on top of each other - accessibility while staying organized is freedom. Bought a 4’x8’ hardboard from Homedepot for $10 and ended up using $1 worth to make this organizer.

Used a template from Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:119530 but wanted the tray to open from the narrow side, so mod-ed the file.

Voila! Pure organization satisfaction.

Looks great! The openings for the ability to grab the paper is a real asset!

That came out really well. (Looking around at the paper piles everywhere around me) Such a useful thing, too…

oh that’s super, thank you. As soon as it cools down enough (laserspace is a garage in Socal) I’m going to make this. I love boxes.py.

lol - that was my problem but with the Glowforge we can make our own solutions! I hope you’re staying safe from the fires. Also in SoCal area now…and I’ve been avoiding using the GF in general in this heatwave -_-

Nice to hear from you again! Be safe from the fires, the heat and the rolling black outs.

Oh yes, it’s madness with all the fires.

We are thankfully in the mostly-pavement section. The last few years have sure had me setting aside the dream of running off to a hillside lair.
