    I need help! I've got a mess on my hands, and I'd like feedback and suggestions from the forum on methods and idea to improve what I've got.

    If you've got similar questions on how to display something, how to organize your junk, or are looking for help on improving the collection makes posts as well!

    This is what I'm working with; Two towers flanking a short dresser, and a cube.

    Tower 1 is a 16"x16" 4-shelf w/ 4 interior drawers. 6' tall.

    Tower 2 is a 16"x12" 6-shelf. 6ft tall.

    The Dresser is 39" wide, 21" deep, and 30" tall.

    Tower 1;
    Top 2 shelves shown below. Top shelf has a 10th mountain and Flying Tiger yellow bag, and an SI sticker card in the back. Current pairs are my 4 Ten (and a loose NewFrog). The Multicam Ten started life as an SI Ten, if that helps.

    Here's a better look at shelf 2. "Build Them Yourself" card, 2 lens tier stand (Qtrain custom perfmetal), and somewhere around 15-20 lenses.

    Shelf 3 is a mess. I have all of my NewFrogs crammed in there. They're messy, there's too many boxes, trying to get one out to wear results in this catastrophe. I have my Chop Jupiter Camo in there, and I have two name card things (that are proper for this model!). Help needed on this one.

    Bottom shelf... Just a few pairs, and a 3D scatter skull. I haven't done anything with this to try and make it look good.

    On top of the tower is the cube, set at a 45 so it sits on top. Inside is a Shoe One high in yellow, and there's an SI box, and a hat along for the ride.

    Tower 2; This is a dedicated M Frame Tower!

    Top shelf - Chop brushed metal, polarized display, and my Gen1/2 vintage frames and lenses.

    2nd shelf - my 3 Gen1/2 Slash pairs, and an Oakley Sports Evolution card. And a random frame.

    3rd shelf - Heater pairs, and an M Frame nameplate

    4th shelf - Strike pairs, 2.0 pop card, and Chop Pro custom

    5th shelf - Pro pairs and Pro nameplate.

    Bottom shelf - 3 styles of M Frame cases

    Dresser;
    Nothing organized. Cases, bags, spare parts, etc.

    I can ship you my GF to organize that right up. She organizes all the Oakley store and Rolling O displays as per specs required.

    First thing I notice is you have no stands.....to help with that try folding one leg in on each pair (the same leg on each one) and have them sit behind each other while standing on the bottom orbitals. This will make them sit straight up while being able to have them way closer together. Know what I'm getting at?

    Yeah, I get you.

    How much for the lady friend to come pay a visit?:blush:

    As for stands... Up to this point it's been "get some stands or get a new pair?" and the stands have suffered. If 3-tiers weren't god damn $100 (or some non-hyperbole amount) I'd have some. They cost no more than a few bucks, I refuse to pay that much for one. Q can't make them much cheaper, and I haven't seen too many other brands that would be cool looking.

    Shitty thing is I know a company with a plastic injection mold machine (2, in fact) that sit dormant a lot of the time. They work mainly in metal forming, so their vacuum mold and injection mold machines don't get used much. Only trouble would be getting dies made, so I'd need a design and to produce a LOT for it to pay off.

    If I could get rid of her that easy she would be all yours to borrow for as long as you like. :eek: I'd ship her to you for free....I doubt you would wanna send her back though as she is very useful. ;)

    She made the same suggestion I did with folding the one leg in for each frame that sits on the same shelf. This way you can see each one easily while saving room at the same time.

    Also, is it important for the boxes to remain with the frames or can they go into the drawers of the tower? This would free up some room and with unused stuff like cases and boxes hopefully you can cram enough stuff in there and try to save some of the space on top of the dresser also.

    If there is no lighting on top of one of the cabinets you can try putting boxes up there as there is also that recess...right?

    I wish those stands were way less expensive and easier for people to get. :(

    Tower 1 has no light, and no provisions for lights. I'm working on solutions.

    The boxes aren't important, they were added as I got pairs, and when I had ~7 it looked good. Now I have like 15 Frogs. Bleh.

    With regards to the lenses.....I cannot think of any better way than you already have them all stacked nice and in order....those are good enough. They could be positioned better for you to see maybe.

    I guess let's see how the leg thing works out.....you do have quite a mess on your hands and it's gonna take a little time to organize but will be well worth it....till you get more pairs and run out of room.


    Hmmmmmmmmm......I think a double wide would fix your problem right up while eliminating those towers. ;)

    I think stands are the key, maybe.... here are some ideas.

    I know this was on a double wide but some variation of it could be done in a single.

    Also like Frank mentioned folding one leg.

    I know its tough to do with limited space. You could also hand a bar similar to a clothes rod in a car for travel the noses could rest on and the glasses at say a 45 deg or 60 deg angle.

    Not enough room to do the 1 leg out. Might just have to expand to the bottom shelf. Or sell some....

    5 duplicates (black, gold polar, matte clear, tortoise, rootbeer) could be pulled out into a "wearing" rotation, leave the others in the display to be pulled out less often.

    When I'm not trying to get at them, they didn't look too shabby lined up on a box. I could just take out the back boxes and do this with the display set.
