After completing the Miter Saw Station, I added the center drawers for saw blade storage. All shelves ride inside dados and the bottoms are just MDF. The blades are held in place with dowels and I drilled holes at the edge of the blade location to be able to remove the sharp blades easily.
The pulls are made from 2×4 blocks run through the router and painted with black lacquer. I like the contrast of the birch drawer fronts and the black drawer pulls.
The entire assembly was then mounted in the open center section of my recently constructed miter station.

Very nice. I really need to build storage like that for my tablesaw blades.

That a great idea and accessory to the miter saw station. Something like that is one of the many things I need to build for my workshop and table saw…thanks for sharing.
