I just did something similar when I cleaned my shop last month. Did not realize I have so many blades. I remember I made a cabinet to hold all my tablesaw blades when I first built my shop some 40 years ago. Have to say those blades are still there and have not opened that cabinet in a long time. I use to know an older gentleman that sold at auctions lots of tools and blades. He was my go to guy for router bits and saw blades and planes and even a few routers and things. I use to get deals I could not pass up. I have so many router bits that I will never ever use but they were at that time like $40 to $50 bits and I use to get them for $5. He made me buy things. I miss him and now that he has passed on I sure wish I could still buy things like that for prices like that.

Organizing? What is that? I skipped school the day that word was taught! o_O 😉. Looks great!!

I too have dozens of saw blades of all kinds and they certainly need organizing. And so do my tools!

Good idea to keep it handy where you can retrieve the proper blade in a few seconds. Pegboard is very handy. Have a sheet but no wall space to hang it. Mine blades are in a cabinet under the TS. For some reason, getting harder to bend over to get a blade.

I bet the same person is either lowering your cabinet or raising your tablsaw as they are doing with mine. If I ever catch that person we are going to have to talk. o_O

You've inspired me to clean up just a little. I tend to nest in to a project and I stuck my lathe behind my saw, then suddenly I needed my saw so I had to clean up. Top pic has an arrow pointing to the blade on my saw, bottom pic is an arrow pointing to where the lathe was before I cleaned up.

So there's why I should never post pictures of my shop.

How'd you sneak into my house without the attack cat having you for lunch? Oh, right. a scratch behind the ears and you're in. I hesitate to show a picture of my workbench...
