Swanky blade disposal
Posted: Fri Jan 29, 2010 5:27 am
What I did was make a "cozy" for my ordinary blade box. A little dab of hot glue holds it in. A razor knife cuts the glue when the box is full and a new one goes in.
I have some in the works made from different types of wood. This one is mahogany and maple.

Really nice. Looks a lot classier than the old soda can I've been using for almost three years.

Would you part with one for a fair price?

It does look better than the empty Altoids can I use. But I just keep it in "my" shaving drawer in the bathroom where it's been for (can't remember when I started using it). Wonder how long it will take to fill it up?

Beautiful work. A woodworking question: How did you route the curved recess? It is deep Or did you assemble it after shaping?

A nice box you have made. It is good to have a blade bank instead to throwing them away like some careless moron.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
Dave, I started with a solid piece of wood and drilled out most of the material on the drill press with a forstener bit then made a template for the router using a pattern bit and finished up. Really the hardest part was getting the slot correctly located.
Mat, you have a PM.

Very nice!! What's the metal portion underneath, if a guy was angling to make his own?

As any trufan would know, the only possible answer is "Yes"! :7)

Reverend Jim, that is a classy looking box.
On the other hand, here's mine - not so pretty, and it is a great dust catcher to boot. What can I say (the round hole is for spent Trac II cartridges, an afterthought) --
