After I cut a piece of sandpaper from a full sheet, I keep the remnant sheets in a 3-ring binder, indexed with page protectors labeled by "grit". It's a big help when you need a sm. pc. of a specific grit... and prevents you from cutting up your nice full sheets for just a little piece...

My "full sheets" are kept in (x3) 10" x 13" clasp envelopes, labeled fine/med./coarse. Stored vertically along with the binder; this takes up very little space in your workshop, and you always know where to look, when you need sandpaper.

Daayumn. I'm pretty organized, but if I start doing stuff like that, it just snowballs and I get bogged.

I am disorganised with sandpaper and I like the ring binder suggestion. I end up with used and unused, cut and pristine sheets all over the place. The only thing I do is, after tearing off a piece, write the grit on the back.

I always seem to manage to take off a strip without the grit printed on the back!

Yes Ian... we are constantly "challenged" in this hobby... excellent for the mind...

just thought of another "topic related" shop tool... a "Sandpaper Cutter"! Screw a 32 t.p.i. hacksaw blade to a 6" x 12" pc. of plywood to cut your sandpaper with. If you need a certain size, mark it on the back and tear off; grit-face down. You can store it with your 3-ring binder and clasp envelopes. Better than ruining the edge on a straight blade... and you end up with more remnants; completely justifying the use of a binder.

lol!

Update.. I did make a sheet-cutter from a hacksaw blade screwed to the edge of my workbench.

I decided to finally reface my sanding blocks and such. I attach my paper with double-sided tape on the backside of a block or completely around a dowel without over-lapping. It's great for dowels.

I cut some 1/2" PVC blocks from a smooth-sided sheet back when I worked at the sign shop. They're 2" x 3.5" and make a nice block for smalls.. and sanding spackled holes in walls.. Grits from 60 thru 600.. utilizing my 3-ring remnant binder.

I have wood blocks too.. You can staple into soft pine blocks with a paper-stapler opened-up. Removing the staples later is easy with the point of a hobby blade. I like the tape. it peels off in one piece usually.

Getting started over the last few nights.. stripping old paper.

This is the type of project that will help me get back into model woodworking. Tools are everything.
