Super simple blade storage

Simple plywood box with dado slots in the sides. 1/4 in hardboard panels slide into the slots. A 5/8 dowel forms a hub to hold the blade. I had to spin the dowel on the lathe to buzz off just a little so it would fit in the arbor hole.

Cool job. I think this is the best way to store blades safely.

This is a nice and practical TS blade storage piece and will be great for shop organization.

Nice job Ben!
Kepps’em separated to avoid damaged edges and makes’em easy to take out.
I’ve been meaning to make one of these and I think you’ve given me the shove to get started.
