It’s kind of a combination of ideas found from the web. The major difference for me was the angle of tilt 60 degrees. I did this so that it would’nt protrude too far from the wall. Made from left over plywood scraps and some doweling.

Greetings Marcalo, Yours look like mine I made about 10 years ago…pretty close, huh?

Yeah it is close I like it. This is a good example of what I was talking about with the 60 degree angle to have it not stick too far from the wall. Yours seems to be at a 45. Nothing wrong with that I just don’t have too much space. Thanks for the comment!

Greetings Marcalo: Yea, you’re right…..I cut my angles at 45 degrees, but after seeing yours, I wish now that I had done mine at 60 degrees….makes it snugger to the wall like you said…But my shop is fairly large, so I don’t even pay any attention to it…..Goos job on yours….. Oh… and thanks for the comment on my shop. much appreciated.

Looks like a great idea.

Nice job.
Makes selecting just the dado blades and shims you need to get a particular width easier then digging through my dado case.
That’ll have to be my next plywood scrap project.
I like the angle on yours too.
Thanks.

PS: Welcome aboard.

Okay where on earth is my previous comment on this?

Your blade rack is top notch man. I have got to make one of those ASAP… About the only things I would change is to provide some place to keep the blade wrenches, and maybe the dado, standard, and ZCTPs… Just thinking out loud as it were though…

Totally agree there is room for adding all those things but for me I don’t need it with the storage solutions I already have in place. For example my blade wrenches are attached to my table saw by factory design. Thanks for the compliments they’re awesome!

I just received some blades and will be making one of these to put them in. Cool Idea and I like the slant -since I dont have a lot of space either.

Thanks Michael. One thing I will add is that I wish I’d made room for more blades seems that my collection keeps growing… sigh… guess I could just make another…
