Yes, short of causing your untimely demise and marrying your widow, where can someone get one of these now days?


I'm joking about causing your untimely demise, of course. I've my hands full with one wife, I don't need two. Besides, I'm not mormon.

Nice layout. I see handles but I bet that's not really that portable.


Is that bottom part a pull out board or just an extension of the bottom? That on a cart base would be nice.


My grandfather was a carpenter and I have a bunch of his old work storage stuff but nothing as large as that beastie.


This one gets the most use. I have to find a new knob:




According to my mother, he made that shortly after I was born, circa early 1970s. Nothing like good old fashioned woodwork. If this was bought from Wally-world it'd be MDF and dead already.


I started sanding it down to do a new finish on it. It had a handle on top. There are some good furniture stripping companies about my area, so I might just take it to them to get the nooks and crannies.

Where do these come from? More to the point, where can I get one!


I think Tranquil Ape has one you could take off of his hands... :ph34r:

I actually have one of these that used to belong to my Grandfather (he used it as his welder's toolbox back in the day.) one of my current unfinished projects it stripping and sanding it, and refinishing it., but until now, I hadn't been sure what I would use it for.

If you don't mind my asking, what all do you have tucked away in this awesome baby?

      So after too many years of painting with my bottles just in boxes or standing around on my shelf of shame or in various drawers, I have finally at much cost of labor made paint organizers!  BEHOLD!  I made these to hold up to 204 Reaper dropper sized bottles (Army Painter and Vallejo fit too).  They aren't the only ones I use by any means, but they're the bulk of my paint collection.
      Wasn't the hardest thing in the world, but honestly I might try another method if I do this again.  Right now the units are loose, probably going to lean them on the wall--eventually I would put supports on the backs so they can stand up at an angle (think picture frames).  The insane super duper bonus feature is that I can put the two together and transport, or more importantly, SHAKE all my paints at once!  The main purpose was organization though and being able to see each of my paints and, when I've organized and sorted them, see the spectrum at a glance rather than digging through a drawer as I have been doing.  For the chromophiles out there I'll post pics when they're sorted and in their proper places.
      To make them, I sized the bottles and figured out the hole size and spacing (bottles are about 1" diameter, I used a 1 1/8" hole saw (paddle bit blew out the back side) and drilled 102 holes (sandwiched the 3/4" boards together).  It took hours as my drills' batteries kept dying and the saw lost its good edge by the 60th holes or so.  I used the "holes" I drilled out as supports (had to chisel the middle supports in half) between the silver parts and the 5mm (yes, civilized world, in the US we know how to use proper/metric, and certain sizes of wood are specified in metric!) plywood base (black, not really visible).  I carefully glued and screwed these together.  Decided to use up some spray paint I had lying around.  Enjoy and be inspired!

      Recently some of the games I have acquired come with so many boxes of extra figures that I don't know what to do with them all.  The game boxes themselves have the plastic tray inserts in them that are made to hold just the base game figures which is nice but...  It poses the problem for me that if I want to use an expansion or anything I have to carry multiple bulky boxes.  How do you folks deal?  I'm just running out of space for all these game boxes.

      Hey Everyone, first let me say thanks to all the great people who visited us at ReaperCon. You guys definitely made it our best Con yet. We sold out for the 3rd Straight year. We always love coming to ReaperCon!
      Now it is time for us try again to restock and continue to make the best storage and display solution for miniatures on the Market, No Foam required. Our latest Kickstarter has launched, and this version of the Clear XCase will be better, stronger, faster...OK, maybe not faster, but definitely better and stronger. These units are able to withstand pretty much any normal usage scenario that you might throw at them, for, what should be, years to come.  Also, you will have a chance to get your hands on the first wave of organizational inserts we plan to offer for the XCase. The shelf and tray inserts that are add-ons will allow you to display your miniatures even more prominently during travel or will hold your dice, tokens, cards or whatever components your game has... except the board.
      This is a relaunch as our September campaign came up short. We did quite a bit of marketing this time and we are doing better but we could still use your backing I hope you will come check it out.
      XCase 2.0 Kickstarter

      A minis/painting station transport bag from Portable Warfare with modular selection of foam insert trays. I'm interested...though I've never been one for the rigid transport cases (personal opinion) and hey mobile paint station possibility too.

      Miniatures Vault Great for all Metal and plastic Miniatures, as used in RPG systems and table top WarGames.
      Medium Miniatures Tray We have already made several test samples that have been sold. This is an opportunity to lower prices and mass produce these boxes for anyone who would like one!
      Small Miniatures Tray Holds up to 114 Miniatures! Very Compact 12"x 9"x 4" Design  
      High quality, much like comic and trading card boxes.
