Have you considered custom-fitting a drawer? A friend, whose husband is handy, had him fit her rather shallow sideboard drawers for her silver service. They lined the drawers with silver-cloth, then he notched out diagonal slots for the individual pieces in several wooden blocks and glued a double layer of silver cloth (folding cut edges to center like commercial bias-tape) on the slotted side, leaving the wood exposed on the sides and bottom. They laid out all the silver in the blocks for a practical arangement and then attached the blocks from underneath the drawers. It looked very nice along with being functional, and it's always been in the back of my head to do something similar, though I was considering covering a piece of thin plywood as a base for a less permanent installation.....but for the moment will continue on with the assortment of various silver chests, cloth rolls and bags that currently house much of my silver.
