Finally, after being in our house for five years, I’ve gotten my shop to the stage where all of the major tools have an efficient permanent place and the major furniture/fixture builds (outfeed table, miter station, router table, etc) have since been completed. So I can now focus on doing little custom storage and other niche items. Here is a storage cabinet I made for all of my table saw blades and their related accessories. On the wall to the right of my table saw, there is a weird triangular shaped spot on the wall in the corner of where two dust ducts meet. Coincidentally, the spot was just big enough to make a custom cabinet to store my table saw blades. Luckily, my blade wrenches, blade guard, miter fence and riving knife already have spots built on the saw itself for them to hang. So I just needed storage for blades and extra brake cartridges.
The top part of the cabinet has a little blade caddy that I made, and a few wrenches. The bottom section is my dado stack, dado throat plate, extra brake cartridges and some other small miscellaneous parts. With the exception of making the odd shaped upper door, this project was quick and easy. And I find it provides much more efficiency and convenience than I thought I would.
