Sandpaper Shelf

I got tired of having all my sandpaper strewn between three different bins and having different grit sizes rubbing on each other. Therefore, shelves to cover every conceivable grit size I might need, plus one. Definitely my largest project so far.

Oh wow, I love this practical project! It would be great in a papercrafter’s den as well.

It’s not measured this way, but you can think of it in terms of particles per inch. Like dpi/lpi, in physical manifestation.

I’ve used both 36 and 50 surfacing a wood floor. They’re super aggressive.

Thanks! This is an ICBM stencil font I found in the interwebs somewhere. I did the placemen in SolidWorks which resulted in a weird dxf output. Inkscspe wouldn’t recognize the letters as fillable, so I had to cut them as a score in the masking tape and then remove all the little bits before painting. Fill and engrave would have been so much easier. Next time I think I’ll put some guidelines in the dxf and place the characters in inkscspe.

Ha ha ha, I saved them for random projects. I’m sure they’ll be used eventually.

You know, I probably would have done that is if have thought of it. Hanging folders never occurred to me. Oh well, not the first time I’ve managed to pick the hardest option available, lol.

Story of my life, but that’s OK, I’m good with that. Then I know exactly why you don’t do it that way. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
