Sorting and storing LEGO
My current project since I moved to another appartment, biger than the previous one, however, I have a feeling it's not spaceous enough for this. I have bricks all around. But this has to be done, before I'll start MOCing again. This way I hope I'll be able to find bricks faster and also have them at hand for different builds.
About this creation
At the turning point in my life, I ½realised that I've been ordering new brick from Bricklink and at the same time I had them at home already. So, it was obvious I was in need for some more efficient sorting and storing solution. The plan was to do this before starting new MOCes. Well, that didn't go through completly, so my workspace isn't like that anymore, and there is still a small amount of bricks to be sorted. However, lack of space to store the bricks or even have them at hand when building, is another matter...

Completely understand-able :-) I hope I'll be able to have a spare room sometime in the future, as for now the living room is also my partner's working area and his storage area for his (and some of mine) bricks...

Quoting Thoy Bradley Wow that is a lot of little cubicle thingies. I would get lost in that. My collection is sorted into groups of bricks, or colours which clash so as to make more efficient use of my storage containers (Check my post 'My room of stuffs'). I find the draws are super! This looks great but way too much work :)
Well, this compartments are good for memory training. :-) I don't have problems remembering where specific brick is. The problem I have is lack of space. This solution is temporary and for now it's part of my bedroom. I plan to move it to the living room, but I'm not sure on how to do that. I was thinking of the drawers (like yours), but at the moment they would take extra cash and space, and the current solution is just better, as I can put them in the wardrobe when neccessary.

Oh ummmmm.....it's not really chocolate milk, it's a chocolate liquor made with 40 proof alcohol. http://newsfeed.time.com/2010/11/30/the-unlikely-four-loko-alternative-40-proof-chocolate-milk/

Great system! Looks like a big sorting job, but worth it in the end.

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor If that's "adult chocolate milk" on the table, you have my attention.
I'm not sure what you mean by "adult chocolate milk", but for me, while relaxing and sorting LEGO a cup of black tea is a must.

This is just what I could do with for all my little intricate pieces ! It makes it so much easier when turning an idea quickly into reality.....nicely done.

Ah, good stuff. I spent 3 hours re-organizing the room upstairs where I keep the bricks. It is never quite the way I want it, and I always find a tub of pieces I need to sort.....sigh

This system is good for small pieces, but once the boxes multiply (by unknown forces) it gets a bit tricky to handle them around. As can be seen, the desk top is also my (small) building area. However, these boxes are also handy, as they can be put away very easilly. Once properly closed, you can even turn them sideways for storage in narrow places. So, for now I'm sticking to the boxes and Zip-bags.
