I needed a good way to sort and store my new and used scrollsaw blades so this is what I came up with. I had some scrap butcher block counter top that I used for the base. It is nice and heavy so it is not prone to tipping. The tubes are PVC set in holes drilled with a forstner bit. I labeled the front row tubes with specific blade type. The row in back is the same blade type but has been used. The ‘new used’ are labeled on the left end.

I knew that old PVC would come in handy. Nice setup Dave.

Nice setup. I built a similar holder using toothbrush holders found in a dollar store.

Blades from Mike’s Workshop? Best I’ve found!

Very cool! I did something similar using containers that I got from the company that tests my blood. Great Job!

I considered your question and turned the holder on to its side. The knobs are 1” thick and will give sufficient side protection. If it falls from the shelf to the floor, that may be a different scenario.
