Cleanup Center

I've built a lot of storage cabinets for my tools and hardware, so I always know right where to find them. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for my cleaning supplies. To solve this problem I built the heavy-duty cleanup center you see above.

What's nice is the center has a number of handy features. First of all, it hangs on the wall, freeing up valuable benchtop and drawer space. Second, there's enough room to fit a variety of cans, spray bottles,

and other cleaning supplies. And, third, there are a couple of customized compartments for a box of shop rags and a roll of paper towels.

But the main reason 1 made this cabinet is to hold a roll of kraft paper. I like to use kraft paper to protect the top of my workbench from glue squeezeout and finish spills. When the paper gets dirty, I simply replace it.

Since it's more economical to buy the kraft paper in large mils,

1 added a hardwood roller and a shop-made paper cutter to the cabinet. Now, it's a snap to tear off any size sheet of paper I need.

Since the idea for the cleanup center is to provide a central location for shop cleaning supplies, 1 didn't need an elaborate cabinet. So, what you see here is a simple, no-nonsense plywood case with strong and sturdy dado joinery. And it all comes out of a single sheet of plywood.
