Table saw/circular saw blade simple storage

I have seen a few storage ides for saw blades, and I needed to clean up my shop a little more, so 5 minutes later I had my very simplistic blade storage. I took a scrap 2×6, set my table saw blade to 45 degrees, and started cutting. I made cutes every inch, I guess 1 1/2 inches might have been better. Again nothing fancy but I had a spare side of a storage cabinet, so now it holds my saw blades.

One of these days I will dare to tackle a more complicated and intricate project like the rest of you guys once I get all my shop projects and wife projects done.

Looks a bit dangerous to me. A heavier hit to the shelf and you’ll have them all on the floor (hopefully not on your foot).

It has been my first reaction too. Maybe a bit deeper

It seems ok right now. The blades are pretty tight in the grooves, I will do a little testing today. Maybe I will glue another piece of wood on the back of the first one and recut the groove deeper.

Thanks for the advice. Can’t be too safe in the shop.

I worry about the blades warping from the gravity induced torque. Looks pretty though.

My suggestion is to add some plywood (minimuum 1/2 inch thick) about 4-5 inches wide and the length of the 2×6 to each side of the 2 X 6 stock and extend the saw cuts and I think it would take the dangerous look out of the storage idea.
