I don't have a photo but since I use 12x24 stock I have shelves 13"x25" on the wall, made with mdf. One for each of the normal colors, though I combine silver and gold on one. I put full sheets below, so they stay nice and flat, used on top. Small leftovers that are still useful for name badges and other little stuff I keep in boxes by color.

For regular acrylic I have an unused bookcase with 12" shelves and keep them stacked by thickness and color, most is clear, white, or black 1/4" which is what I use the most.

Here's my laser plastic. My rotary plastic is in boxes for the moment.

I buy only quarter sheets.

My metal is stored upright in a converted stereo center. I also buy quarter sheet sizes in metal.

Herez my solution. Architect file cabinets and an old freezer rack. Rowmark goes in the flat file drawers and Acrylic on the freezer rack.

Also, if you wanna look around the shop more (excuse the mess) Im in the middle of re-organizing.

You can look in here it updates every 10 secs or so.

Hmmm, this is twice now in the same number of days someone has brought up a topic that I just read about in an older post.

See this one, too:

Not always on just setting it up so people will be able to look in and see the go'in on's on May 9th.

As long as I dont forget the thing is on it will be ok, plus I'm mostly in the laser room which is behind the cam.

Now thats an idea I can put the cam on the laser and have you guys watch it while I go take a nap. That way it wont be 'un-attended'.

There have been posts on this before. There was a guy on here, can't remember who that posted pictures showing how he stored his along with pages and pages of his entire shop. It was amazing! I couldn't believe this guys shop. It was incredible! If someone remembers this particular post and knows where it is, it may help on other issues as well. I wouldn't mind checking it out again as well.:)
