On the Balsa Model Aircraft Builders Association group on Facebook, the matter of storing balsa came up. John Koptonak showed what he uses, a Rolled Document Storage box.



At 37” tall, it also can work well for storing body tubes. Though since most tubes are sold at 34” lengths, would be a good idea to add some 2.5 to 3” spacers so the top of the tubes would be almost even with the top of the box.

I found one like it online, from engineersupply.com. I"m sure there are other sources.

Sure, after you Paypal me $1000 plus actual shipping cost. :)

To clarify for others, the photo of the box with balsa in it, was by John Koptonak.
