Dado Set Case

The 8” dado stack I bought didn’t come with any sort of caddy, just the blister packaging, so I needed something to hold it and keep it from getting banged around. I made this simple case out of scraps of plywood and pine, with strips of cherry for the runners. The inspiration for the design came from newwoodworker.com. The top simply slides on and off in 1/4” slots cut in the sides. A couple dowels with spacers to elevate things off the back of the case, and it was complete. I finished it with a few coats of water-based varnish.

Very slick – my plastic dado case is just about falling apart. Might be time to spend a few minutes to make it a better home. Is that the stack height table on the back side of the lid?

Hi Earl, just saw your comment. You’re right, I pasted that table on from the original packaging. It just tells which blades to use for different dado sizes. It’s pretty common sense stuff really, but I figured it was worth putting on there.
