Bob has created an ultimate safe storage environment here which is predicated upon the unique storage requirements in the North West.

I live it the South West and the requirements here are drastically different. Perhaps we can get a thread going on the unique requirements of the different geographical areas.

I just prefer to have them out of the scabbard.

The junk that is in the scabbard can cause problems with the blades.

There is always a chance of more runner marks or even scratching of the mottos. let alone damage to etching or personell dedications.

On top of that, i get a smile everytime I open the drawers :) which happens almost daily..

Looks like a 'smart' cabinet. Nice oak on the outside of the drawers and the inside appear to be made of materials that won't 'off gas'.

Yes they are made to resist any damage.

The outside wood is Solid Red Oak.

It took two guys and a hand cart to move them. If i have to guess they would be about 250 lbs.

I had them custom made , the size? 5 foot long , two foot deep and 4 foot high

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
