Has anyone here kept Dwarven Forge boxes in tall stacks for long periods of time? I don't mean to be totally anal, but I'd like to keep my boxes in at least halfway decent shape and I don't want the styrofoam to crush over time (if that's possible). I'm talking stacks of six feet or so. Any of you DF'ers know? How big are stacks in the warehouse? Thanks in advance.

Stacks of six feet tall should not be any problem. We use double-density foam that is pretty tough. I have a 6 foot stack in my office, too!

Great to hear!

Now the question is: which sets does Jeff have stacked in his office?

Jeff, can you give us a count of the number of sets in the 6 foot high stack so we can try and guess them? (yes, I'm bored at work today!)

I pulled my DF out of the orignal boxes and put them in plastic drawers made for stamper paper (Target has these in the crafts section). The ones I use are perfect for DF and are 12"x13" by a few inches tall. I can get 36 of the 2x2 terrain in each one or 9 of the ROTA chambers (4x4). The tops snap closed and you can put foam across the top to protect in transit.

With these containers I can fit about 36 sets into four containers (thus about 9 sets per container). They each run around $30, but I've seen some for as litle as $19.

In the same about of space that you would store about 12 sets you can have 36 and they are ready to pull out and set up with ease.

Sounds exactly like what I need/want. I'll store my boxes, but having the drawers will speed things up a lot. Is this it? (The "Sterilite 7 Drawer Craft Cart" on Target's site if this link doesn't work.)

Yes, that is what I use. I now buy everything in factors of threes and they work out to fitting very nicely into those sterilite drawers. I plan on printing out what is in each drawer in a label and will put a thin layer of foam on the roof of each drawer and they should work awesome.

I've been hauling DF all over the country in these things and they are the best for making DF portable yet protected and compacted. The original boxes are just too bulky for my tastes.

Can you take that apart 1 drawer at a time?

Because 7 drawers at 3 sets a drawer - that's got to be DAMN heavy!

Each drawer comes out individually... they ARE slippery so won't stack more then 2-3 high outside of the frame. When transporting, I take out the drawers, carry 2 or 3 at a time and put the cabinet inside the car/van and put the drawers back in them.

We're moving some around this next week and will snap some pics on how easy DF is to move.

I've searched high and low and short of making your own, this is the best storage for DF I've found. However, my wife does get to poke fun of me for buying "girlie" stamper cabinets and I think the local Target's Business Intelligence database mistakenly shows a spike of stampers in my area because everyone with DF that I know here buys those cabinets.

As a side note, if you buy exactly 36 sets of everything, things fit PERFECTLY into those cabinets :-) lol

Well, I keep the original boxes, both the styrofoam and the cardboard. I have them under the train/gaming table. In the open bays, they stack 9 styrofoam boxes high, in either single or double set cardboard (Cavern, DoE, etc. are doubles); in the bays where I've put a shelf, I can only get 5 and 3 singles or 2 and 2 doubles. The rest of my sets are stacked on other shelves around the basement, and my individual pieces are in Rubbermaid-style drawers on shelves, as are my custom pieces.
But I must say, the BEST storage, IMNSHO, is the styrofoam trays inside the white boxes. It's a bit more awkward to get to for setup, but the ONLY broken piece I've ever gotten was one I dropped from WAY off the floor. I just DON'T get damage in those trays! Even with taking them to conventions, I don't have a problem, because when the game is over, they go back in the trays. PERIOD. And the day that doesn't happen, they don't go to the con any more. PERIOD.
Hey, having the rep as the INSANE GM helps; d'you think anybody is going to MESS with me about my DF?
NOT!
