« Part 1: Tenon Cutting JIG using Rip Fence Part 2 of Shop Made JIGS series Part 3: Saw Blade Storage and Plywood Sheets »

I used a Woodsmith plan to build this simple saw blade storage bin. I had all of the material I needed in my lumber rack.

I also intend to build a wall rack to store more of my saw blades; both 10 inch table saw blades and some circular saw blades. Besides this I also need a safer way to move large sheet goods around in my shop so tote and and sled. I will get to those in the next day or so…

With shop made jigs, tables, etc it is good time to tryout new finish processes. I had trouble with brushing on amber Shellac with a previous blanket chest project. I had a terrible time apply it. I since learned that I should have thinned the Shellac from either 2 or 3 pound cut from the can to at least half that strength.

I took the same amber Shellac can and poured some of it into an empty quart can. I filled it about half full and filled the rest with denatured alcohol and stirred. I wiped on this Shellac on the surfaces of this saw blade storage bin. This was a much better experience. Lesson learned, I hope.
