I would love to be able to store all of my filters and step-up rings in such a way that I can access them quickly AND put them back very quickly in such a way that I can find them again. To that end I thought it would be useful to have a tool box for filters. What I envision are round holes and in the center of each round hole there would be a printeed mm designation. These varying size holes would allow one to "stack" filters of the same size all in one hole.

Not only can I instantly see what filters I have for each millimter diameter, but I also don't have to go hunting for the right filter holder afterwards.

Does such an item exist?

I guess this is perhaps what I am asking for.

The design for each filter holder compartment would have to be square otherwise it would be difficult to pick up the filters.

Sounds like you could just take a case and stick in your own cardboard inserts to create your own. If the design works for you then go for it--should only take a couple of hours to craft.

I'd like the outside to be see through. What I've noticed is that many pre-made cases that have a clear outside have pre-cast plastic walls inside that are not optimized for filter between the size of 52mm to 72mm.
