Wow, this is nice… I was wondering what to do with all my blades the other day. They are hanging on small nails above my head on my workbench… I’ve found out from experience that if I beat on the workbench too hard, I almost get scalped…. soooooo… this looks like a very attractive (and safer) alternative. I may add drawers for bandsaw blades, recip blades, and jigsaw blades… thanks for the post!!

Great solution! What are you using for spacers?

That is a great idea, and very well done.

Now I think you need to spring for one of those electronic label makers instead of masking tape. <g>

I use small litle felt Puch-outs(1/2”) for cushions between blades, their small and easy to remove and install.

I actually have a brother P-touch that I bought last year, but I built this about 4 years ago, and haven’t goten around to it yet.

Nice job, do the drawer bottoms just ride in the spacers, I didn’t see any hardware, and does Borden know you have on of their milk crates?

Nice job, blade are an expensive investment. This really keeps your investment from suffering any damage. Good design.
