I am looking for a better way to store my growing collection.
I love the way some of you (especially pictures I have seen of Pepper’s collection!) use the metal blueprint storage. However I do not have the room(or A room!) to dedicate to large file cabinets or drawer systems. I have my home office to work with and its decor is reminiscent of an old Chicago style cigar bar with lots of dark woods, some dark stones and brown leathers. I would like the storage to be more than just “storage” and rather to compliment the room and the collection.
I need something that will fit on bookshelves. I absolutely love the look of some of these old spool cabinets:
but I have read some of the horror stories of storing cartridges in wood cabinets for long periods of time (how true is this? and is this all woods?)
Another option is metal dental cabinets. I have one like this, but I can not seem to find anymore. Anyone know more about these?
The most functional option I have found is what the majority of my collection is in. These however do not have great aesthetics and I keep over growing them (and they are not very stackable.) What I really love about these is their modularity and how it easily conforms to fit larger cartridges, boxes, or even guns.
Four of these drawers fit in each case.
Whatever system I go with has to be able to easily modulate to fit cartridges, boxes and guns together in one drawer.
Also it has to look good by my hundreds of dollars of decorative books.
