That’s got to be a really heavy drawer with all that solid dwarvenite... hope that’s the bottom drawer!
I've got these units and they're super stable. The drawers don't slide all the way out, so I'm sure that helps (although a bit annoying at times to fish stuff out from the very back).

I don't know about GeekJeff, but I reinforced mine with woodenslats underneath since the drawer bottoms are just pressed-board liners.

Another take on storage - all the meat of Encounters 1-6 fits snugly in a single drawer of an IKEA Alex unit.

I had a small partial box of the leftover Bulbs, Traps, Doors, and Knick Knacks which I'd store separately.

Good to see this! I've got a few Alex drawers reserved for KSV stuff. Hopefully KSVI will fit somehow or I'll be making hard choices about what to keep and what to find a new home for. :)

Is all the glitter on theoutside, or is it embedded throughout the plastic?
I thought it was throughout, but looking at the more clear walls from my Unpainted set I think it may all be external.

Public Service Announcement: as soon as you get your Walls of Force, sequester them immediately in a plastic bag or something so the glitter doesn’t get all over everything. I’m so not kidding... My wife accused me of going to a strip club... :oops:
Is there a way to preserve their glittery nature while preventing glitterpocalypse? Would a quick rinse remove loose glitter and leave the "baked in" stuff? Or maybe a matte sealant over the whole thing?
The glitter on my pieces wasn't bad at all, a few flakes fell off, but certainly nothing serious. I wouldn't be inclined to use a matte sealant, I would suggest a satin or even a semi-gloss to retain the shiny.

Peace
Good point and good to learn. I'll be getting my walls of force in later shipments, so hopefully by then someone will have come up with a fairly definitive (and easy?!) solution. :)

I still shudder to think of how much storage a full DoD is going to take.
So far I have encounters 1-6 in 3 of the 7 litre Really Useful Boxes + 1 box with dividers for delicate parts, LEDs, traps etc.
