    To the disdain of my wife, my camera gear inevitably ends up all over the floor in the living room, so we decided to come up with a dedicated home. We found a night stand with shelves big enough for most of my gear, and created a custom spacer system from some bits of wood from the local art store. Here's some progress shots and the end result:

    Lens rear with no cap is double not good - besides possible glass damage, surely there will be dust that you'll then introduce right into the sensor/shutter area.
    If you have space issues (looks like), then remove the front cap.
    Though, I see that you store bodies without caps too, so may be it's not that all important for you.

    There's plenty of space, I'm not storing them without caps, they were simply put in like that to make sure everything fits. I usually store bodes with lenses on them so I don't have enough caps atm but more are on the way.

    Just a suggestion for future upgrade. Make the main slats slotted so you can change the smaller dividers around for future gear needs.

    Cool idea, though. I went with metal padded cases that get stored/stacked in the office closet. :D

    Thanks for the suggestion, I considered making slats or a rail system for everything to slide along but it's a bit beyond my wood working abilities. The smaller dividers are actually cut to fit and held in place with a little pressure so can be easily rearranged.

    Very nice idea.
    I need to do something similar, but I'm going to use a shelf inside a closet, so I think I will do the same but in a vertical way.
