5:58 -- with all those exposed blades facing up, he may need another drawer to hold some band-aids or perhaps even a DIY suture kit  :scared:

Wow. I think this is the right answer for me. Not cheap, but neither is anything else in this hobby.
There's also a LOT of great recommendations in the description (if you open it in YouTube).

I was eyeing up their paint racks.  Then I saw the weathering clinicians at the MARPM using acrylic stands for nail polish from the dollar store.

This is tempting for sure. It looks like the company is in Poland so peteski will be a buyer. There is a shipping weight minimum, 10kg, which puts shipping cost around 80 bucks for around 100 dollars of organizers.

A trip though an Ikea catalog will net you about the same.

At those prices $100 dollars is only two of them depending on combination.  Some of those arrangements on the website are close to $1000-$1500 before shipping.

For that kind of money I can buy (or make) a CNC woodworking mill and materials and make them for myself, or even with standard woodworking tools for that matter.

That's what I thought at first also but then I noticed ther price was in polish currency. I switched it to dollars and most of the organizers were between 15 and 25 dollars. My quick cat was 4 three tray drawers, 1 paint holder and 1 brush holder for just around 100 bucks and 80 dollars shipping

At first glance I thought this was counter-height stuff filling the corner of an entire craft room. :facepalm: Then I played the video.

He is, but it looks like only to Holland. His website is in Dutch and all the contact info points to Holland

So I priced out his configuration, both the original and what he added at the end of the video.
The original came out to be 157.03 in parts and 83.43 in shipping for a grand total of 240.46
The added total (with original included) came out to be 253.14 plus 94.57 shipping for a total of 347.71.
Not cheap, but not bad either. The shipping is near a quarter of the cost, I wonder if there is anything state side that makes something like this.
