    Here is my interpretation of a sandpaper storage box that I have seen in some of Paul’s photos and videos.  I’m not sure how close mine is to Paul’s dimensions.  Mine however works as intended.  A pinch with your thumb and forefinger will bring out a single 1/4 sheet of sandpaper.  At any rate…is was fun to build and offered me the opportunity to practice planing, housing dadoes, dovetails and cutting curves with the coping saw.  The box will now live on the end of my bench with sandpaper at the ready.  Thanks for looking.

    Hi Greg

    I like your sandpaper box and will put it on to my list of nice to make projects, one concern I have is I am running out of space to store all the accessories I am making, I see you are going to keep yours on your bench either your bench is bigger than mine or you are a lot tidier than me , I would struggle  at times  to find room for a match box.

    I would also like to complement you on your brilliant sketches the box given time I could make but I could never produce such good drawings, is this something you do just as a hobby or is it part of your job

    Greg very nice job on that and that will be on my on going list of things to make.  I have an order ( no money involved ) for some pencil boxes for my Daughters class room after I showed her the DT box series Paul just finished up. Of course I need a few for my self.

    Thanks for sharing !

    Thanks everyone…glad to here that you might find it useful.   @daveg  I am a mechanical designer by trade and do all of my drafting work on computer…but I am old enough that I learned board drafting.  I’m pretty rusty…these drawing are sort of a combination of technical drawing and sketching.

    Hey Greg. Sounds like we are long lost brothers or something. I too do mechanical design on computer and learned drafting (draughting I think for our UK brothers) on a board. Don’t sell yourself short, you’re very talented at drawing. Way better than I am, and I’m pretty decent. Your shading and color work really stand out. What really stands out is how well you lay everything out and make it easy to understand. Most people don’t understand or realize the art required in that alone. I do, because it’s part of my job, and probably the most difficult part. Keep at it buddy, I’ve enjoyed looking at all of your designs and art..

    Really nice Greg. these pictures are very good. There is some technique for drawing projects like 3D?
