Yeah, I'm not worried about the tiles themselves. I have a couple of Ikea Alex cabinets that I have that stuff in (and some other plastic bins I used prior to that sitting in a closet somewhere). I'm mainly talking about tables, chairs, fireplaces, church pews, beds, graveyards, crypts, carpets, bookshelves, dear god what have I done there are so many little tiny things everywhere! ;P

Well plastic boxes are only for the little stuff. For the main DF stuff and all that tonnage, I use a full strength steel tool cabinet. Each of the ten drawers is rated for 50 or 100lbs of load capacity. It is a nice one with a hardwood worktop so it looks nice in the game room. Since it is on 6" rubber wheels, it can roll off into the corner behind the stairs when not needed and comes to that table when we need/want to build stuff.

Huh, I didn't think about loose pluck foam *in* the Alex cabinets. I will have to wait til I get my KSV stuff and see how much room I have left over.

But it looks like pluck foam and plastic boxes are still the most common way. I guess I just need to expand my collection and start organizing. Thanks everyone!

At the moment all our Dwarvenite is stuffed into whatever box or orifice was empty at the time:

That was to be fair a very temporary solution ;)
They are now mostly in plastic Drawers and Useful boxes

The last contains 2 Erinthor mountain sets + add-ons

For "fiddly bits" and small stuff I have various plastic boxes. One box for stuff like pillars and structural elements. another box for furniture (tables, bookcases, desks, alters, and anything like that). Another box for things like wagons and siege engines. Another box for water elements and walls and fences. Almost all of this is ether dwarvenite, or plastic items. So far I do not have much in the way of really breakable stuff, which makes storage far less of a headache. For all the really small stuff (like plates of food or table top items) I have a multi compartment sort of like the one Unclebilly posted to store that stuff so it is easier to find.

edit: I *really* need to do some reorganization... waiting for KS5 to deliver and then I will take a look at it... may buy more of those iris containers with the storage chest (https://www.wayfair.com/storage-organiz ... i1191.html) and organizer trays (sold in sets of 8 https://www.wayfair.com/commercial/pdp/ ... i1395.html)
Those are the ones I use also the same place I got mine.

Mine are much like unclebilly.
But I have a larger variety of plastic containers with dividers... mine consist of whatever I had on hand and what I have found on sale over the years.
I like the pluck foam because we don't play at my house. On game night I can grab a few trays, throw them in an army transport or game plus bag and head to the game.

Nice storage everyone. Maybe I need to up my game as I basically just store them in boxes and try not to handle them with too little care.

I have a large collection in pluck foam. I recently decided to reorganize.

Image

The scrapbook box will hold a one foot by one foot square. Perfect for an encounter.I cut custom spacers from one inch pink foam. I am not sure they are necessary for PVC but I have a lot of resin and hydrocal.I am going to keep the accessories in small plastic boxes in the case.

Image

The case will close with many of the tiles up right. The case is a bit deeper than two inches.
the pink foam is Foamular brand from Home Depot .It is available in 2' by 2's
I cut it with a hot wire table but a razor will work with care.

The plastic box was a door buster at Michaels the regular price is about $10

I store them by themes, The market has a box. The torture chamber accessories will be moved to a box ect.
