Hello everyone. After another productive Saturday in the shop I came up with this French cleat saw blade storage option. It can be modified to your dimensions and needs as always. It features two rows of blade storage with 6 partitions each. The dividers can be removed for larger blades such as 1/2” or 3/4” bandsaw blades. You could even reduce the spacing on one of them for more table saw blades. For added storage options on the outside you could use dowels, screws, or nails.

For those who are interested here is a link to the video:

I really have to say that I enjoy your plans and ideas here a ton. So many of these ideas are just so modular that I can recommend them to my customers just to store about almost anything. Sometimes the trouble with self storage space is the lack of shelving that fits the type of item you’re putting in – you just can’t find stuff like this off the market. Thanks for this Jay.

This French cleat storage rack looks good, but I think that it is a little unsafe since the blades are exposed, and might cause some accidents. I would suggest that for this storage to work perfectly, there should be a cover to hide or conceal the blades, thus, lesser accidents will happen.
