I bought a bench top bandsaw for Black Friday a couple of years ago (on sale and free shipping). Last year I bought a Grizzly 17 inch bandsaw for resawing etc. I have noticed that all my extra blades end up hanging here, there and everywhere. I usually find them as I am reaching for something else and catch a few teeth in the back of my hand.

I found this project in an old Wood Magazine article and gave it a try. Just fir spacers, hardboard walls and 1/4 inch plywood for the back. No finish. Now the bandsaw blades are together, organized and easy t find.

Thanks for lookin’.......................................

Great Project! And, very timely since I am thinking about how to store my BS blades. I think you saved me a lot of figuring. Would you post the dimensions?

Very timely indeed. I just (30 minutes ago) placed an order for the Rikon 10-325 14” BS.

Looks like a quick, effective storage solution. Thanks for sharing this!

As for dimensions: I made the hardboard panels 14” X 6” for the larger blades and 10” X 14” for the benchtop blades. The blocks are 3 1/2” X 4 1/2” cut at 45 degree angles. The thickness of the blocks depends on the width of your blades. I ran the fir thru a planer before cutting the blocks. The plywood at the back is just 1” larger than the overall size of the organizer. You will find glue and hardboard to be quite the slippery slope. I used glue and brads for the insides and glue only on the outside panels so no nail holes would show.

Hope this link will give you some ideas….....................
