Thought it might be fun for a few to share pix of their flat file/storage area/work space, etc...

I'm new to the addiction, so just got a nice big 5 drawer that is filling up rapidly with Spusta, McCarthy, Sperry, Emek and the like. Set it up under a homemade work table in a storage room in the basement that we just finished. Has worked out pretty well so far and found a good place to get Mylar sleeves from (thanks triporfreak). Anyway, post em if you got em and if ya care.

Hope all are enjoying the weekend.

Best, Doug in Ohio

Here is my flat file rehab thread http://forum.expressobeans.com/viewtopi ... +flat+file
The work space is nothing special. Just an eight foot cafeteria table in the utility/storage room.

and here is a couple pics of it in it's final location.
