It’s been extremely hot here in Southern California (100+) and it finally cooled off this Sat. While I’m in the process of finishing some cutting boards for a customer, I figured during glue ups I would make one of the storage bins that has been on my to do list for a while.

I used some left over 3/4 cabinet grade plywood with a few counter sunk screws. The blades are stored at 30 degrees, 3inches apart. I made a cubbyhole (box) for my Freud Dado set as well. I used a corner of the shop that gets little or no use so it was perfect.

It stores a cpl of my Forrest Woodworker II, freuds, and a Dewalt blades. I do not mind that some dust gets on them, being after I clean them I spray them down with Dry Teflon.

Not a big deal I know, but I missed posting something…. LOL

“it’s been extremely hot here in Southern California (100+) and it finally cooled off this Sat.”

Thank God!

Before the last HOT streak, I started to reorganize the Shop/Garage… Had a bunch of stuff in the driveway… that just STAYED there because it was just too HOT to get out there and do anything! Yesterday, I was able to get a little more done on it… A lot better than before but MORE to do.

You did a nice job on the blade holder, etc. Makes you feel good when you can take something from the scrap box and put it to USE doesn’t it?!

I shoulda been out there today… but US Open & Boxing took precedence… now, Football!

Nice out right now! It’s only 77.2!!

Nice blade holder Ken. I have to find a little room in my shop for one of those.
It has been as hot as blazes down here in Kissimmee too.

This looks like a pretty nice project, Ken. Sometimes we need to just get in the shop and complete a quick build to get our woodworking fix. Your design is pretty good in my opinion. It keeps your blades organized and readily available.

Like Nollie, I keep mine stacked in a cabinet as well. When I went to use one the other day I found that it had developed a good case of rust. Keeping the blades visible, like this, is a better approach.

Looks a whole lot like mine. I built mine about 6 years ago, and it’s still doing the job.. Nice build on yours.
I always liked the idea of having my blades out in the open, just to reach and get one….It compliments my clamps…
