Organizing My Camera Equipment

In the nearly two years since I purchased my DSLR, I have accumulated quite a bit of stuff – lenses, flash, bag, cleaning supplies, etc.  My current organization “technique” has been to keep some of this stuff in my LowePro Slingshot 200, others in another bag, and the remainder on my desk or in a drawer.

Well, I’m tired of it. I want good, proper storage to keep my equipment safe and in one spot.

This weekend I started construction on what will soon by my camera cabinet.  Here’s the quick design, without the 2 doors and draw (at the top) since I’m not good enough with SketchUp get them drawn out. 


The middle shelf is going to be adjustable in height and will be where my lenses are stored.  I’m going to try making EF/EF-S mount “cupholders” for the lenses  on that shelf – we’ll see how that goes.

It’s going to be made out of Red Oak and once it’s done I’m hoping to stain it to match our piano.  So far I have the inner box built and the top shelf thing for the drawer made and installed.  So far it it’s been a fun project, and one I hope turns out how I imagine.
