what are you using to store sets in?

Whatever it costs, if you have an expensive or nice wooden set, get it.  The bases of my major pieces are all cracked on my big wooden set.

These go for $53.00 in medium and $58.00 in large here in N.Z which is around $37.00 - $40.00U.S  I think. Pretty cheap I reckon, I've just ordered two for a couple sets that are on their way.

Nice man. Can you send a link to where you bought this from? Thanks!

New Zealand Chess Supplies. I'm not sure what sort of cost you'd be looking at after shipping to the U.S. The medium size is ideal for 3.75" and the large should be ok for anything up to 4.5".

Try these. They work. Amazon sells them also.

If I ever buy another decent set, I likely will.  Until then, I'll live my shameful chesspiece abuser life for all to see.

The XL box for if I get the 6" Philippines set. For now I store 3.75" dubrovnik set all standing up and have some room left for an apple, 1L stanley thermos and a small chess clock.
