For years, I stored my sawblades in a cardboard box under my workbench. I built this storage unit from some 3/4” poplar plywood and 1/4” hardboard. It measures 12.25” w x 19.5” h x 12.25” d. The blade storage trays (6) are laminated hardboard with holes drilled through the first layer to act as a pull. Each tray can hold more than one blade. If there is more than one blade I separate them with a 1/8” piece of hardboard to protect the teeth. The trays slide in dadoes cut in the case. The sides of the case hold my inserts, push stick, miter gauge and arbor wrenches. The upper section of the case has two storage shelves for my stacked dado set and my box joint set. I plan to mount it to the wall near my saw. Haven’t decided whether to screw it into a wall stud or mount it on a French cleat.

Maybe I’m just partial to my own Ridgid saw, but all the orange looks great. I’m using the same Ridgid blade featured in the last picture and like it very much. If only I had the money and space for your Grizzly…

Awesome!!! I have been wondering on how to keep my tablesaw accessories organized. This has pointed me in the right direction. I like the french cleat idea so that you could move the storage unit. Now one of my favs. Thanks.
