CD STORAGE CABINET
A small footprint and room for over 1000 CD's.
SHOP OWNER: Loren Estes
LOCATION: Palouse, WA
I was asked to make a CD rack by a person I work with. She wanted it to hold more than 1000 CD's and not take up too much floor space. This is the design I came up with. It is based on a cabinet I saw on the Internet, which was just four boxes fastened together. She wanted the project made in oak and doing the four boxes made the price prohibitive.
This version was still not cheap to make but it uses about 1/4 to 1/3 less wood. The main case is 3/4 inch oak plywood; good both sides and dadoed together. To hide the edges, solid oak was rabbeted and fastened to the plywood. All this was placed on a 12-inch Lazy Susan and fastened to a 24-inch square base. It required 40 shelves, which will hold approximately 1280 CD's.
The pictures show it unfinished because she wanted to do the finishing herself. I was very glad since I already had way more hours in it than what I had planned. The finished project is 75 inches tall and has a 24-inch footprint. The same design could be scaled down to make a smaller cabinet for someone with a smaller CD collection.. . . Loren Estes
