Get the free, step-by-step plans to build 3 saw blade storage solutions including this saw blade rack from WoodsmithPlans.com.
The best storage systems make it easy to choose the right blade for any situation. This storage rack does just that. It works as a kind of filing system for your saw blades and lets you identify and access any blade quickly and easily. Best of all, it keeps your blades from banging into one another and chipping their teeth.
The rack consists of two sides and a back that form a “U” shape, as shown in the drawing above. Angled slots cut in the sides hold the blades and make it easy to see exactly which blade you’re choosing. The only tricky part is getting the slots to match up. To do this, first join the sides with double-sided tape. After marking the slots on one piece, drill a hole to locate the end of each slot. Then cut the slots with a jig saw or band saw.
Finally, attach the sides to the back with glue and screws and hang the rack on the wall near your saw. Take the time to build a blade storage rack for your shop — the results will be worth the effort.
