    Gee, it doesn't sound like you guys have very many materials to store. I have a cheap, particle board cabinet; 5 feet tall 30 inches wide and 15 inches deep, with shelves holding 27 clear plastic shoe boxes and a few other containers. The shoe boxes are lableled in general categories (saddles and necks, dubbing, hair & fur, etc.) and make it fairly easy to find things. Each of the shoe boxes holding susceptible materials gets a couple of mothballs annually.

    I also have a hard shell suitcase. My intention was to build a tying desk of sorts into one side of it so that when it is opened I have my vise, tools tying space on the bottom side and my most used materials accessable pouches/compartments in the rest of the suitcase. That was the intention..

    So far it is just a big box, with my stuff thrown in it.

    I had stuff all over, what a mess. I bought an antique roll top desk, pretty good sized. It is now filled, over filled actually. I have some stuff still in plastic boxes here and there and need to really decide where in my garage/shop the desk will sit and then nicely organize all my stuff together.

    ...the larger economical plastic tool box works for me, along with large ziploc baggies. That is if I put it away. Usually strewn all over my desk.

    I use these recently acquired drawers that I finished to match the roll top for routinely used items. Not to mention the "stuffed" four drawer legal size file cabinet and several large boxes of material in the garage!!
