Voila! Storage solutions!
For the lower priced pencils which generally come as loose stock, we have a 4-draw A4 paper tray, as shown above . Using heavyweight acid-free paper and (supposedly) archival quality adhesive I have made some inserts for the trays. 26 slots per layer, 2 layers per tray, 4 trays in the unit so that’s 208 pencils in total. It’s about ¾ full.
There are still several storage crates full of boxed pencils down in the storage room.
Upstairs in the office at home we now have the display cabinet. I bought the glass fronted wooden cabinet several years ago – just got around to doing something with it a couple of weeks ago! I put in a couple of wooden shelves, made some little display stands and the vertical rack system out of artcard, etc.
