1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    So basically men's jewelry boxes. What does everyone use? I was thinking about getting a couple of cigar boxes and using them, but I don't feel like doing a craft project by myself, and the ones I saw were done pretty poorly...

    It depends what kind of quality you want... I mean I have something like this for everyday use (looks nicer though):

    Perhaps you are looking like something more like this:

    I kind of want something more antiqued and maybe not instantly recognizable as a jewelry box.

    Hmm... custom might be your best choice then. Check with a local small cabinet maker.

    You really should check out H. Gerstner and Sons, then: http://www.gerstnerusa.com/index.html

    They have been making toolboxes (primarily for tool and diemakers' precison tools, not like Craftsman boxes from Sears) jewelry boxes, and other collectors' boxes for like a hundred years. I can vouch for the quality of their product -- my father has two walnut chests of theirs, and one of the first things I bought myself when I got a job was a Cherrywood chest.

    For watches and cufflinks, the Style 212 might be good:

    As would the Style 250:

    Or especially their new bowfront chest:

    Those look nice but are probably way overkill for me...

    I have a charging valet with spots for my cell phone and other accessories, plus a slide out drawer for cufflinks, watches, and other jewelry.

    I use a few different cigar boxes that I lined with felt from Michaels crafts. Works well for my watch needs. Although now I need to get some winders for my automatic watches.

    I think I am going to end up doing that as well.

    Post pics please. I'm trying to find a box to store 4-5 watches, some links, and with a drawer for some watch straps/tools/etc.. I can never find anything like that.

    I think Gilt is selling men's jewelry boxes right now from Steinhausen...
