This was a fun little project I made for my dad a few months ago. It was in one of my woodworking mags a while back. It’s a saw blade holder that hangs on the wall via a french cleat. It’s made mostly of baltic (russian) birch, with a few pieces of pine in the dado cuts. The pull-outs stop at a certain point thanks to small blocks glued to the top back of the pull-outs. Each pull-out holds two blades on either side by a brass screw. The screw goes through the wood for strength and the point is filed down flush.

I’ve never used brass screws before and I didn’t realize how soft they were, which made it easy to file down with a simple file. I like the look of this plywood and left it in it’s natural colour with a minwax polyurethane. I should have made two of them, because I want one now.

Please post comments on how your father likes it. I had seen it in the magazine and thought about making one. I’ve seen several different designs and am not quite sure which I like or work best.
