After all the uproar over the weekend about projects, and posting, and such I got to thinking…I haven’t posted a project or a blog in a long time. As all the typing was going on, in between my rantings, I was in my little garage shop making this cool blade holder. I got tired of hanging my blades on a nail and the dado set was in a crappy box on a shelf. I get emails from Wood mag and this was a free plan. I liked it so I knocked it out over the course of a couple days. It is made from basic HD birch ply…I would have rather built it out of some nice Baltic, but this is what I had on hand that was large enough. It was pretty easy to make, and like everything else in my shop, I didn’t’ put a finish on it. I actually got the can of poly out this time…but once I put it up on the wall to test out the spot…it wasn’t coming back down!

Looks great , David …..I might have to give one a try. Do you have a link to the plans ?
Are you going to attend the woodworking show in January @ the Big E ?
We’re going to have an LJ booth there this year.

Some times the little projects are the ones most cherished.
I made a couple of them myself quite some time ago,
and I still enjoy the usefulness of them.
Way to go, nice job.

David, Looks great. I just saw the Wood TV episode with this in it. I don’t yet have enough blades to worry about it but I like the concept. Maybe some day.

I like those test mounitngs where you go “That’s it – I’m done!” Much better than piling the blades on a shelf. I need to do this. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent idea David. I have a case I keep mine in and it’s always a hassle and time consuming getting them out. I like this idea a lot. Thanks for the post.

I like this, low profile and requires very little space.
