« Part 2: Saw Blade Storage Part 3 of Shop Made JIGS series Part 4: Wall Rack Finds Its Home »

I have had the need to have a better storage solution for my table saw blades. To a smaller degree I also need to have a similar solution for my circular saw blades. I looked through my Shop Notes and Woodsmith archive for some suggestions. I decided to make a table top bid as well as a wall hanging rack.

For this old man it is becoming harder to move around full sheets of 3/4 inch plywood; especially those with core’s of MDF. Therefore, I made a skateboard for moving sheets of plywood from my truck to the sheet storage location in my garage woodshop. I also made Woodsmith’s plywood sheet tote.

The photo below shows the completion of my shop made items that include my rip fence tenon cutting jig, the saw blade storage bin, my saw blade storage wall rack, the plywood moving skateboard, and the plywood carry tote.

Now I that I have those things completed, I can turn my time back to building furniture.

Nice job. I’m needing to do something about my saw blades too. I made one of the plywood carriers a while back and love it. I call it my “gorilla arm”.

Yeah, I am hoping this tote will help me when I try moving a full sheet around my shop. It should help my back, too.

What happened to the pictures?

Azor, I hope you can help me with my photos. I shot these in the portrait mode. you know vertical. I cannot find instructions how I can rotate them to the right like they were shot. Your help, or anyone’s would be appreciated…
