Circular Saw Storage Caddy
Storing a circular saw is a hassle in my shop. I want it to be easily accessible, but it doesn't fit neatly on a shelf or in a cabinet. To get around this problem, I built the storage caddy shown in the drawing below.
The caddy is designed to sit on a shelf, as you can see in the photo at right. The face has a notch cut 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.

Congratulations to Angelo Tsarpalas of Glenview, Illinois. His design for the I-beam sawhorses (page 6) was selected as winner of the Porter-Cable router just like the one shown at the right. These sawhorses may be light in weight, but can stand up to the most demanding tasks in the shop.
To find out how you could win a Porter-Cable router check out the information above. Your tip just might be a winner.
