Creating the elusive ultimate storage solution
Hey everyone, I am fairly new to the forums. I have been on a quest for sometime to find a storage solutions for Lego bricks. I have tried the sorting trays with lids, the tackle box type, the Akro Mills bins, the craft trays, IKEA trofast bins, etc. My favorite solution to date is the old system that Lego designers used (you have seen them around ;)). I have come to the ultimate conclusion that there is not any system out there that will work exactly like I want unless I make it. So I am doing just that.
I already work in manufacturing and have run a facility for almost a decade. I have done custom cabinet work, metal works, polyethylene work, etc. I am done looking for a solution and I am now just going to make one. I am able to create shelves, inserts, and the cabinet to hold them. I think I have found a material and system I like but now just need to fine tune it.
My question for everyone here is: What is your wish list for a Lego storage cabinet? Like number of drawers (think about 20" wide), number of cubbies per drawer. What is your issue with the system you use now?
What I am working on is a drawer type system with removable drawers. I am also working on a modular divider system for said drawers so that they can accommodate different sizes and styles of bricks.
Anyway, I would like some feedback and thoughts on this idea.
