Storing scroll saw blades became a bit of a mess so I dug into an old box that I had saved glass tubes that cigars came in that was given to me by a friend, (and there were lots) and they were the perfect height for the blades. Went to the fall off pile of wood and found some small pieces of 3/4×6 inch pine and made a sort of rack for the tubes. The top holes are bored at 3/4” and the bottom holes are 5/8”. The bottom holes align the tubes up nicely and the through bore allows any dust to pass through so there is little or no cleaning. The finish is one coat of varathane and a coat of floor wax, (smooth as silk).

I do like being organized don’t you? Reminds me of those blood viles they have at the hospital. I wonder where I could get some of those hollow tubes since I don’t smoke… This looks like a good idea for storing small screws I use for boxes. Hmm….

Good project and welcome to LumberJocks,

Great holder. I did something similar with some scrap 1/2” pvc pipe.
