When I purchased my dado stack set, it came in a flimsy, clear plastic package that did nothing to protect the components from damage. So I decided to build a sturdy box to keep the blades, chippers and shims organized and safe from harm. It’s a better solution than the traditional nail-in-the-wall approach, and it gives you the perfect opportunity to put your dado set to work.

My design features slots to hold the chippers and an area to stack the two circular blades. The blades are separated by wooden spacers covered in laminate to prevent contact that can damage the teeth.
