Inspired by the 6 pack holders we have had posted as projects the past few months I put this idea to use for holding 7 ¼ inch saw blades and dado blades. Bare bones basic construction, it is a box with some dados for the dividers and that is about it. The handle was a previous template / test piece so I put that to use as this needed some way to get it out of the drawer it will be housed in. This was a small part of a larger overall project that is still not completed. See pic #3, this is one drawer of 14.

There are lots of ways to store blades, this may not work for you but then it might.

Be inspired and make some sawdust!

WBBN, this is a fine idea and a good build. That drawer looks very organized. Good for you. You might consider adding the two or three tools you need to change these blades in the skill saws you are using to the tote or at least have them in the drawer. My tools for changing blades hang on the side of my tote. Adding the tools makes the tote one stop shopping. Just for an exchange of ideas, this is my take on a saw blade tote. Sounds like you have a grand plan for your shop. Hope it goes well.

i have to be honest here i personally do not like the idea of having blade sitting on teeth ….might not be a problem for some but for me this would not work well …i do love that color blue

Good point. I did not take a picture of it, or mention it in my write up, but I shorted the dividers 1 inch and used some soft foam to cushion the blade.

I like the way you make the saw holder, very original. The entire project is well designed, everything you need in one area. For those of us with small shops every tool should have it own place. Thanks
