Keep your desktop clear and your papers in order with this attractive organizer.
Keeping letters, bills, and papers sorted is always a challenge. This handy mail organizer hanging on an office wall can keep all that correspondence close at hand. From a woodworking perspective, it’s a quick and straightforward project to build. The tongue and dado construction makes the joinery a breeze while also providing plenty of strength. Most of the joinery work is done on the sides. Then it’s just a matter of cutting rabbets on the ends of the shelves, front rails, and the back rail. A plywood back keeps everything square.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
