« Part 2: Leftover Wooden Creates Part 3 of Shop Organisation series no next part

Before buying a regular table saw I seldom changed saw blades on my skill saws as I mostly had the right blade in one of the saws. Now I need to change more often and for that reason I built an easily accessible storage rack based on Jay Bates' video. I altered the sizes according to my blades and the material I had lying around.

Very nicely made! I’ve only got one thing to say though – why would you suspend the blades above ground! I don’t know if I’m being paranoid but storage for sharp things should be as close to the floor as possible! I really wouldn’t want to risk any of those blades rolling and falling out of the storage rack. Could be a goo idea to put an incline on the inside of the unit to make sure that doesn’t happen!

I was sceptical myself and too lazy and curious till now to add some kind of fence :-) but there is no real tendency for the blades to roll out. I will do so some time, but this is low priority.

You might want to look at the video or better the follow-up where Jay recites a number of Chuck Norris pieces :-)

Nice setup. Always nice to have everything you need within reach
