“The problem: saw blades stored in a messy pile, dulling each other and making it difficult to find the one I need.

The find: a discarded CD storage tower with two curved, slotted plywood pieces.

The solution: a shelf for holding saw blades! Blades are kept separate, and the teeth are easy to see. I also incorporated a lower shelf for storing my dado blade set, molder heads and other accessories that don’t fit in the CD slots.” — Jay Brown
