I made this several years ago and I’m finally posting it on LJ. I purchased a dado set which came in a cheap cardboard box so I decided to make a storage box out of plywood. I used 3/4” ply and a 5/8” dowel to keep the blades in a neat stack. The blades are separated by pieces of foam. The front compartment contains samples of dados, e.g., 1/4” + .005, 3/4” + .030, etc. A plastic baggie holds the shims. I added a second handle on the rear of the box because I was concerned the weight would put too much stress on just one handle. The finish is warm cherry and semi-gloss poly. Admittedly this is one of my first woodworking projects ever and the joints suck. One of these days I will make another box and it will be much better! I probably will use a hardwood instead of plywood.
