Have more than one blade for your table, radial arm or mitre saw?  I have a few and wanted a way to store them for easy access, safety, and to prevent damage.  Here is what I built.

Materials:
2 - 2X4 - 11"
2 - 1X4 - 11-3/8"
Couple of wood screws and glue.

Instruction:

Cut your 2x4 and 1x4 to length.  This may differ depending on the number of blades you have.  Mine is designed to hold 10 ten inch blades.  On the 2x4's cut 1" deep slots on the flat side.  Measure out your slots to be 3/4" apart.  For mine I just ran my widest blade through twice creating a 1/4"  cut.  Do this on both 2x4's.  Cut your 1x4 to 11-3/8".  You are now done cutting.  Assemble the wood with the 1x4's on top of the 2x4's.  I use glue and screws to strength.  Screw your pieces together and when you are done, your final dimensions should be 12-1/2" high and 11-3/8's wide.  As I said earlier, if you have more blades, increase your dimension to fit the number you have.  You can leave it raw wood, paint or stain it.  Install your blades, find a suitable location and you are done.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for looking and check out my other submissions.
<p>I was contemplating a piece of laminate curved around the back, so you could tip the stack, and you wouldn't have to concern yourself with pushing the blade back too far. </p><p>If you went that route, you could cut the slots on an angle a degree or two off ninety, so they tended to slip toward the back and the laminate (or viynl, etc.).</p>
<p>Short, sweet and simple. I like it. You can even see, at a glance, what the blades are for.</p>
<p>Made it, and added a foot (2x4x6&quot;) to the bottom plate so I could fasten it down to the shelf.</p>
<p>DoDo729: I thought your idea was awesome and stole it. The dowel addition was genius.<br><br>Thanks for finding a purpose for my scrap wood! </p>
I would suggest a dowel from top down to secure the blades in case you need to move the holder. <br> <br>Excelent idea.
Hi, thanks for looking and commenting, The dowel is a great idea and I will do that. That's why I love this site. Great ideas shared. Thanks again.
Good idea!
Thank you, hope you can use it.
