I am a beginner at wood turning having just purchased a midi lathe.
I need advise on storing several discs and spindle blanks that I purchased and received today. They have been wax sealed accordingly by the web site dealer but I need to know, should I store them in the workshop garage in the cardboard boxes the came in or empty them out and stack them on shelves on the garage wall and on the concrete floor ?
I shall not be using them until I am sufficiently able to turn them properly.
I would be grateful for any advise.

I store mine under cover in stick with a good air flow. Try not to put them in a hot environment. Most wood turning items so are normally quite small so wood movement will not be a problem unlike bigger boards which would need acclimatising.
I have a mixture of green blanks and some which are dry as can be seen in my post HERE. You will also be able to see how I store mine

Thanks for your reply.
So it would be best if I stored my waxed items in my unheated garage with spacers between them, but for how long can I do this without any detriment ?
