Now this I like! A lot better than the cardboard box and pieces of cardboard between the blades I currently have for my old DeWalt set. Thanks for sharing the idea!

That is a nice case. It keeps the blades safely stored and readily available. Great idea.

Nice piece and a good idea. It stimulated my thought processes and when I considered how I use and set up the dado it seems it would be more convenient to have them in a rack like the old vertical record holders; only in a nice closable box. That way when the box was open you can access all the blades at once without pulling open multiple drawers.

Nice idea and well built dado set case.
I should start making one for my circular saw blades. Tired of searching when come to changing the blade and worse than that, cannot remember where I keep the box.

I really like that! I especially like the way the little drawers slide…I may have to try that on something…:D
