JIGSAWING requires the use of various types of blades for different materials. The storage of the various types of blades so that they are instantly available can be simplified by the construction of a jigsaw blade drawer mounted under the bench.

The size of drawer to be made will depend to a great extent on the space available for mounting it. If the bench is less than 24" in width, or if more than three compartments are desired, two or mare drawers may be needed. The drawer is built around a length of cardboard tubing at least 2" in diameter. The tube is split down its length to produce the semicircular form for the drawer. Cutting of the tube may be done on the bench saw.

At least 7" should be allowed for each blade compartment. A three-compartment drawer will require a tube 23" long. Semi circular spacers are cut and glued inside the drawer. Strips of wood 1/4" x 3/8" are glued and fastened with nails along the edge of the tube to carry the drawer in the runners. The drawer front is a piece of 1/2" stock 2" x 3 3/4" fastened to the semicircular block.

Drawer runners are made of two pieces of 3/4" x 1" stock having a 5/16" x 3/8" rabbet cut along one edge of each as shown in the detail. The runners are fastened to the underside of the bench top.
