I like the way you arrange the storage. very neat.

Well, inside the dry box it's neat, outside that it is a total mess.

Those white trays from a bargain store were a bit flimsy when loaded so cut some thin plywood for inside each and placed some microfibre cloth over that for minimal padding.

To stop lenses rolling about I added some stick on foam strips (like weather seals) on the ply but under the microfibre cloth so the lenses don't clunk into each other when moving the trays.

When messing about with the door open the air escapes so the humidity goes to the usual about 60% or so in the house. Close the door and in a few hours it is back at the 40% setting which is good enough.

Hmmm, just looked at my in/out weather doodad and at 3pm here in Sydney it's 39.1 C = 102.38 F and 20% humidity outside. Inside this room it's 23.5 C = 74.3 F and 60% humidity due to gentle air-con.
