I have a number of 10” and 12” blades that I need to build storage for, what is your preferred method?

Hang it with a peg, duct tape it to the wall, make a rack…

I have a 1×10 oak board and I have mounted several pegs (dowels) into it at a slight upward angle. The board is attached to a wall.

Similar to Rich’s idea, take a couple 2X6s and cut angled kerfs in them and mount them side by side on a wall.
Or, build a box with hard board “Shelves” that slide in kerfs in the sides of the box. Like a paper file holder….sorta.
That’s what I did for blades and sand paper.

This one is easy and works well…prolly similar to what Gene described. They’re still exposed to dust though, and you have to be careful not to rub against it!

I have a plywood “rack” similar to the one in the photo above by knotscott, but I like the idea of simple drawers instead.

Thanks for the suggestions and links.

I like vertical or horizontal pigeon holes. Takes minimal space and protects against getting snagged by them.

I keep them in their original cardboard sleeves stacked on top of each other. They don’t take up much room that way and you don’t have to mess around when you take them for sharpening.

I don’t have much of a blade collection. If I have to change a blade, I’ll usually just find another way to make the cut. Does that make me weird? I hate changing blades. Or rather, I hate checking setups after I’ve changed blades. Don’t even get me started about bandsaw changes;)

Wow, I had forgotten I even posted this…504 days ago.

This is what I ended up with for my storage, incorporated into my outfeed table for my Unisaw.

I stack mine in the cabinet I built below my table saw. I put a round cardboard disc in between each one to protect the edges from hitting. I only have about 4 and don’t change them much. I don’t like leaving them out where I can bump into them They cut you pretty quickly just standing still!...........Jim
