   This is a great Fathers day, Birthday present, or just some thing for you. You can also decorate it or paint it as well. I like natural finishes. So I kept this one all natural. This Robot will be able to hold your saw blades as well as your scroll saw blades. This way you don't have to sit them down some where and ruin your blades. Also this is a good way to have storage while having a piece that everyone will like and talk about.

Step 1: Cutting out the Body

   You need  to first cut out the body. The pieces that I used the 1/2" plywood, you can use 3/4" plywood. The reason I choose to use 1/2" is because I wanted more slots for blades.To do this I used a band saw to cut out the following pieces. You need to cut out 2 pieces of figure "A" from a 1/2" plywood. Next cut out 10 pieces of figure "B" from 1/2" plywood and lastly cut out 12 pieces of figure "C" from 1/4" plywood. Over all size of figure "B & C" should measure 11" by 13" Once all of the pieces are cut out next you will need to drill 3 holes through each piece in the same spot so that a piece of all thread will go straight through them all.

At that size, what size blades will it hold? 5-1/2, 7-1/4, 10, 12's? I'm too lazy to figure for myself.....

I don't have any circular saw blades so I don't have much use for this (although I guess the head part with the scroll saw blades could be handy) but I gotta say this is adorable and clever!

Fantastic! I love that it combines form and function. Very clever!

This is great, I have also these small saw blades and bits...thanks for sharing :)
Very cool!

Though personally I would keep the saw blades away from the robot. The only robot I would trust with such potential weapons would be the Instructables Robot... Any others might not take to kindly to living in my workspace, as there is hardly any space for them to live.

All joking aside this is such a creative way to store
those saw blades, you can never seem to find
, when you need them.
Though, I would be tempted to electrify it in some way.
(Lasers anyone?)
You should definitely not trust the Instructables Robot. I can tell you first hand, he is mischievous.
Mischievousness I can deal with, I myself can be very mischievous. I am more worried about the robot going all homicidal on me.
he looks soooooooooo menacing with those in his belly
This is awesome.
Very clever! Good work.
