Upgraded the blade on my tablesaw recently and got to noticing that I really didnt have a good place to store my spare blades when they were not in use. This includes both the circular blades as well as my spare band saw blades. I got the basic idea from a tip in woodsmith then put my own twist to it. The project includes horizontal storage for the circular saw blades and a till to put the band saw blades in. This part of the project was made from scraps I had already in shop so the cost was pretty minimal. Will eventually have to add pulls to the facings but that is a project for a rainy day. Slowly but surely transforming my work bench from a horror movie prop into a user friendly part of my shop

Quite a few years ago when the article in the magazine came out I also built a blade storage cabinet useing their plans. I’m pretty sure that I still have the article. It works well, and I’m sure that you’ll enjoy yours.

A lot better than my stack of blades
My list of drawers is stacked up in a holding pattern
I’ve a new kitchen table on my bench that needs 4
drawers. It may get them this year. mmmmmmmh!
Although it may be next.

Hey farmer dude, thanks for the comment sir. I hae spent the better part of a week down thereand everytime I think I am making some headway… you guys put out another “just gotta have” project…and wham, I am changing something again. Its true, I went down there to clean up from earlier today and wound up putting together a sand paper rack…I am a sad, sad man…lol

great storage.
i just stack mine on my workbench and i just have to move them from one place to another.that makes more sense than building a rack for them right?who would want them out of your way?

just kidding.i only have a few blades i will build one if i can ever build up my collection.that hutch is coming together nicely.
