I use mailing tubes taped together for longer strip wood and parts. 



Nice, I really like that cabinet, thanx for posting the link!


For the smaller more fragile strip wood I use an Ikea ALEX cabinet with wide shallow drawers.  This is also nice for tools.



Here is a link to the cabinet:  http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40196241/

I'm old enough to remember when computers came with manuals, and those manuals were enclosed in nice sturdy slipcover boxes...

Dang, you are old!   :D :D :D 

I remember when computers, and software, came with manuals too!   :o


I remember slide rules.   :o Now that I think about it, I think they were faster than my PC with Windows 10.


I had one of the first PC's in my office at Michigan Tech. as a grad student.  Students would make appointments for my office hours just to see it.


Sorry - we got off topic.




The cardboard tubes in the picture above is what I use for my strip wood .

I found one of those NESL milled car roof 24" strips with a price tag on it, $.29 (1980 or so)

Dave -

I bought those milled car parts around 1990 when I had big plans to scratch build cars.  Yup, big big plans.....   :D

Random modeling of this and that.  For trains, the SP and the northeast.
