Been watching the sandpaper caddy and decided I needed one. Made this one out of 1/2 inch cherry. I was going to try to figure out that housed dovetail joint but I decided I will try that out in pine for my next one.
Dovetails in hardwood are decidedly less forgiving than in pine.

Wow Dave, that is really nice! Some really interesting grain pattern in there, looks really good. I believe my Daughter would steal that from me if it were mine, and replace it with a shoebox thinking it was a fair trade.

Nice, like the dovetails – they appear to be very crisp. The cherry’s finished well.21 April 2013 at 8:56 pm #11211

Thanks for the comments! It was on my to- do list for my small shop. I needed a place to keep my sandpaper :).
Scott, in hardwood, the dovetail cuts need to be bang on with the saw. The wood doesn’t compress like in pine so you can’t really rely on that to press together if the cuts are a little off.

I like it. I need to make myself one of those. That’s my goal for the weekend!
