I love this sandpaper chest by reader David Rockdan and I’ll tell you why. Because David understands how storage is supposed to work. He had a need and he filled the need — it’s just that simple.
This eleven-drawer chest is both easily accessible and unfinished. Why is that, you ask? Because he damn well felt like it. It has eleven drawers because ten is too sissy and a dozen is just bragging. There is no trim because David correctly determined that his chest will see service in the shop, not the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In short, it’s a box with paper in it; no need to muddy the waters.
Joking aside, great job, David – it’s simple, cheap, clean, and it holds a ton of paper. And I love that you used ply.
