Woodsmith Tips

Storing a circular saw can be a hassle because it doesn’t sit neatly on a shelf or in a cabinet. To get around this problem, I built this storage caddy. It’s designed to rest on a shelf or inside a cabinet as you can see here.

The face of the caddy has a notch cut in from the top for the blade guard of the saw. A cleat near the bottom of the face supports the saw in position. The face is screwed to two triangular-shaped end pieces. This way, the saw can be easily stored on a narrow shelf with the cord tucked neatly beside it.

Now storing my circular saw is no problem. And whenever I need to use it, it’s always within reach. All I need to do is grab it by the handle, slip it out of the slot, and it’s ready for use.
