Make this fabulous little storage unit with common cove moldings available at any home center.

Tired of constantly fussing around with your scrollsaw blades? With this clever helper made from common cove moldings, you can easily retrieve blades by reaching in with a finger and sweeping the blades up along the curved edge of each hollow.

To build the drawer, glue and clamp the cove pieces together. Then, screw the guides underneath your bench or scrollsaw stand. A string keeps the drawer from sliding out too far, and a brad nailed to one guide stops the drawer flush with the front of the bench.
