I acquired a load of old saw blades and have been trying to find a use for them.
Fed up with having the workshop look like a tip I thought I'd try tidying it up a little.

You can never have too many shelves. The oak was chucked out by a skip so I asked the builder if I could buy it from him-he gave it to me, so that was a pleasant surprise. I fixed the shelf with concealed brackets, then grooved the saw blades in the bottom and secured with stixall. I drilled holes right through the wall and have got some beefy 6 x 140 pulling the shelf back to the wall.
I might make one for home. It'll be alright so longs I don't trip over after a few beers and slice my head open lol.

Looks OK and the timber was a nice score, but I couldn't do it. I don't own anything that I haven't found a way to bang my head on at least once, regardless of how difficult to reach.

Tis true. I always chuck my apron down and thought I could hang it on the teeth instead.

I think I'd have to try quite hard to bop my noggin on it.

That's a really good idea. I'll have a look later and see if I can find a need for one at home.
Cheers

After this project

I quickly learnt a metal jigsaw blade wouldn't be an option. I used a standard thin 4 inch cutting disc. Luckily the wall was fairly straight so it wasn't too wibbly wobbly.
