I don't have a cool homemade solution for storing filters. However, the Sun Dog
filter wallet is the best I have yet to see or use. Both Domke and Nikon tend
to leave a residue on the filters. The Sun Dog has a mesh liner that keeps the
filters clean. It is about the size of the Nikon model and holds six filters.
They sell for about $20.
