A while back Swirt did a saw rack and it was simple. It used the french cleat method with makes it easy to move around or repair. Here is his project.. I had saws all over the place.

The process is simple all you need is some scrap and a few dollar store bouncy balls.
I layed out the location for the balls and styles.

Then I set up the angled pieces for the balls. Swirts blog covers it in a lot more depth. Thanks Swirt, great project.
The best thing I like is it holds thin Japanese saws very well.
Thanks for viewing my project.

Great execution of a very ingenious design! Nice job.

Thanks for the links. I had seen & forgot about this space saving shop organizer. I will need to incorporate this into my shop. I just need to get a few saws. I have a couple, but nowhere near enough.

looks like a great idea Dave. I checked out Swirts blog. Now I wish I had even a little wall space for this.

Thanks Don, I laughed so loud my wife asked whats so funny?
Mike I had to rearrange a few things myself. It was nice getting them all in one spot.
Thanks Roger I think it took 10, I would like to get some more I think it will be better with a pair in each hole.
Joe thanks for the vote.
Geo it took about 2 hours to build. Thanks on the bank.
Roger it depends on the hole;)
Dollar store Joe!
I like my saws Eddie.
Thanks all you guys this has been a fun project and thread.
Don that is still funny.
