    Bandsaw Blade storage

    Have had all by bandsaw blades hanging on a couple of wood pegs behind the bandsaw. Had always to taqke them down to see what was behind the one in front. Saw this in a Magazine and looked like the answer for me. All made from 1/4" plywood and just glued together. 1/8" datos !/4" wide. Yah Right, The last time I saw !/4 " thick plywood was back in the 60s. So some extra figuring to be done so everything comes out OK. After all was assembled I used one of those pieces of plywood from the 60s that used to be in my familyroom. Used that for the back.When you compare the thickness of thr venear on that old stuff....wow what a difference.

    Still want to put a finish on it but can do that tomorrow. Good place to be in the shop with all the snow and cold winds blowing out side.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Neat. Mine are on a hook high up behind the bandsaw. I use a pole with a hook on it to get them down.

    That's pretty neat! For years mine hung from pegs & nails in the shop. I haven't had a chance yet to figure out where to put 'em in the new shop, so they're still just piled in boxes right now.

    That is a cool idea also Frank. My dad's Mobil station, we had belts and hoses (they had a slip on clip for a hook) hung high and used a stick with a bent nail to "hook" them and bring them to the floor. Had forgotten that. The belt assortment added something to the wall I always thought. Hmmmmmm.

    It came out pretty close the way I had planned,except for the finish. A little harder to get finish in those narrow2 slots (1 1/2" ) between dividers. But a little BLO on a foame brush attached to a 16" stick got the job done. I just like to have stuff finished in my shop.

    Nice solution, Ron. I have about a dozen 132" blades on hooks on my pegboard now. Your design would save me a lot of space!

    A solution to that type of problem is to pre-finish the wood or plywood. I like to seal full or partial sheets with shellac, then cut to final size.

    Great idea, Ron. It looks like your shop is well organized. Do you have your shop posted in shop tours so we can see some of your other organizational ideas?

    Rich I had posted a couple of pictures a long time back, I should put in some more for a lot of the additions that I have made since. After seeing all the great stuff that Jon has posted,it may have given me a push in that direction.
