New Ink Pad Storage

I have been looking and looking for ink pad storage for my SU ink pads. I haven't been able to find what I wanted anywhere. I have found things that were close, but nothing that was exactly what I wanted. So my hubby and I sat down a couple of weeks ago and I told him what it was that I was wanting, he came up with a proto-type, that sort of worked but not quite, it needed to be tweaked, so we tweaked the design and came up with something else. He can only spend a couple of hours here and there so it took him a couple of weeks. Not to mention that it is a lot, LOT of repeatitive cutting. It's not finished yet, he is going to add drawers to the bottom that will fit my ink refills, but other then that it is perfect!

This beauty will hold 60 ink pads, and once finished will have room for 48 ink refills in the drawers (the drawers could be used for other things of course, but I want to use them for my ink refills). I am so happy with the finished product. I asked for it to be white because when we buy a house and get to put together my dream craft room, all the cabinetry in there will be white so I wanted it to fit right in. I am going to have him build marker storage for my SU markers and Copic markers as well, but those will wait. He is going to the drawers for this unit next (I will post pictures of the final product then), and then he will build a few other peices he has been wanting to do for other parts of the house. I was just so excited about my ink storage that I had to share.
