If finding a specific grit sandpaper in your sandpaper drawer is a frustrating chore, here's an easy way to bring some order to the chaos. A reader submitted this handy caddy design, which is basically an embellishment of a simple alignment block for installing orbital sanding disks on a sander. By making several of these alignment blocks for each of the grits you use, all you need is a case to store them in. Suddenly that drawer is much less cluttered!
When it comes to finish sanding, a light, nimble sander that won't gouge vertical surfaces is essential. The Bosch 197D is all that and more.
