I know it happened to me quite a few times.
So when I saw this caddy in a magazine (I think it was in shopnotes) I knew that it was a must to do small project for me.
The Note Caddy is suitable for any size workshop, Garage or even for your house.
Step 1: Dimensions & Matterials
Basically made out of scrap 9mm MDF, and a piece of a dull hacksaw blade for cutting the paper, it’s an easy project to do that will also prove to be a very useful one. Doesn’t need to be fancy, just handy!
French cleat hanging system (18mm MDF) at the back helps to keep it mobile if needed.
Dimensions: This one is about 5.5” X 5.2” X 3.4”
Oh and one more thing. You know of those free IKEA give away short pencils? They are perfect for this caddy!!! ;-)
I think the SketchUp photos are sufficient enough to help you built this kind of project to your own measurements and requirements.
Step 2: Latest Improvement
Many times we come into the shop and we can’t find where we last left our measuring tape, so I thought what a better place to make a tape holder than on my Note Caddy to store the measuring tape!
Two pieces of 10mm scrap wood and a 2mm metal plate fixed on the left side of the Caddy did the job for me and improved the Note Caddy design as well.
